Indigenous People Day/Columbus Day

  • Monday, October 9, 2023, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

In observation of this holiday the Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County offices will be closed.

Cornell has long and historic ties to North American Indigenous Nations and communities. Our Ithaca campus is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ (the Cayuga Nation), members of the Hodinǫ̱hsǫ́:nih (Haudenosaunee) Confederacy. Today, we have vibrant programs supporting education, research and engagement with many Indigenous communities.
