MINNEAPOLIS — Indigenous Pink Day is a national breast cancer awareness campaign for American Indians/Alaska Natives. The American Indian Cancer Foundation asks Indigenous People 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 is a national awareness campaign, so you can participate from wherever you are!
