“Alcatraz Sunrise Ceremony” for Indigenous People’s Day (2022)

The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremonies are annual events held on Alcatraz Island to honor the Indigenous Peoples of America and to promote their rights.

Held annually since 1975, the Alcatraz ceremonies commemorate the protest event of 1969 where the Alcatraz-Red Power Movement (ARPM) occupied the Island.

The Indigenous Peoples’ Day Sunrise Gathering on October 10, 2022, and the Indigenous Peoples’ Thanksgiving Sunrise Gathering on November 24, 2022, are organized by the International Indian Treaty Council commemorating the 1969-71 occupation of Alcatraz by the Indians of All Tribes.

These are one-day events and not the standard Alcatraz Island tour; all areas except where the ceremony takes place will be closed and inaccessible to the public.
