"Each year hundreds of local residents are inspired to carry the principles of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. forward through a day of community action with fellow non-profits and the faith based community to offer a range of exciting options", states Volunteer Center Mobilization Coordinator Christina Thurston.

King "was a remarkable advocate for change for all people of color in America, including Indian Country", said Baker, adding that it's appropriate for the tribe to formally honor the late civil rights leader.

The principal chief noted that King wrote about colonization and the injustices committed against indigenous peoples. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. "Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it".
