ELEBRATE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES' DAY!

                        15th Annual Papal Bulls Burning


In solidarity with indigenous peoples around the world, please join us
for the annual Indigenous Peoples' Day, Papal Bulls Burning ceremony
in Honolulu on Friday, October 12 at 5:00 pm in front of the Roman
Catholic Diocese of Honolulu, 1184 Bishop St. (at the top of Fort
Street Mall). It seems impossible, but this is the fifteen year that
this event has been taking place! Over this time, we've done a lot of
educational outreach to inform the general public about this important
issue.

Indigenous peoples and supporters outside of Honolulu are encouraged
to organize a small ceremonial event and symbolically burn or tear-up
copies of the May 4, 1493 papal bull "Inter Caetera" in demonstration
against "Columbus Day" or "Discoverers' Day" as it's known of here in
Hawai'i. The document can be downloaded from our website at:

*Students are especially encouraged to attend in order to put theory
into a little practice by linking the papal bulls issue with other
important indigenous rights' and global issues we've been diligently
covering in class.

Sponsoring organizations include: Kosmos Indigena, Ka Pakaukau,
Department of Ethnic Studies (UH Manoa), Ahupua'a Action Alliance,
Hawai'i Institute for Human Rights, and the Kanaka Maoli Tribunal
Komike. For more information, email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , or phone

*Indigenous peoples and supporters seek the formal revocation of the
1493 papal bull "Inter Caetera." This decree was issued by the Vatican
to Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the Caribbean. Along
with the 1494 Treaty of Tordesillas, it sought to establish Christian
dominion over the globe and called for the subjugation of
non-Christian peoples and allowed for the seizure of their lands. As a
result, an estimated 100 million indigenous peoples were killed off in
the process of Europe's colonization of the indigenous world. This
papal edict has apparently never been repealed and is thought by many
to be the "foundation-stone" of the international system we live under
today and directly related to the corporate-state-military plunder and
rape of the planet, which is sometimes linked to the phenomenon known
as "globalization."
