Indigenous Pink Day is an annual event in October! Watch for more details about Indigenous Pink Day 2018 later in the year.
October 19, 2017 was Indigenous Pink Day.
Indigenous Pink Day, on October 19th, was a national breast cancer awareness campaign for American Indians/Alaska Natives. The American Indian Cancer Foundation asked men and women of all ages to wear pink and share photos on social media using the hashtag #IndigenousPink to spread breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death and the most common cancer found in American Indian/Alaska Native women.
The goal of Indigenous Pink Day is to educate all indigenous people on the importance of early detection and remind men and women to keep up to date on their screenings. This was a national awareness campaign, so you could participate from wherever you are!
