The Greater Cincinnati Native American Coalition was formed in the Fall of 2014 in response to the Cincinnati Human Relations Board's proposal regarding changing Columbus Day to Indigenous People's Day. We have continued pressuring City Council to adopt this resolution since. In 2016 we responded in solidarity to the Standing Rock Movement, coordinating support from the Cincinnati area. Since then we have responded to Native organizers' call to action from Washington DC to Flint, Michigan. In recent months we have been working with #WordsMatter organizers regarding the mascot change at Anderson High School in Anderson Township, Ohio.
