American Indian Cultural District celebrates anniversary, opening of Cultural Hub on Saturday

In 2020, Sharaya Souza co-founded the American Indian Cultural District, an organization dedicated to recognizing, honoring and celebrating the American Indian legacy, culture, people and contributions, according to the district website. On Saturday, AICD will celebrate its one-year anniversary with a free event, open to the public, from noon until 3 p.m. at Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture in San Francisco. The festivities will feature local American Indian leaders, local elected officials and traditional American Indian song and dance, as well as a moment of silence for lost community members. The celebration will also feature the grand opening of the district’s Cultural Hub, a community center that will provide culturally relevant education, art and wellness programs in an inclusive and safe community space. The Cultural Hub, located at Fort Mason, will be open to everyone in the Bay Area and will house various American Indian organizations, including the International Indian Treaty Council and the Association of Ramaytush Ohlone.
