Indigenous Pink Day is a national breast cancer awareness campaign for American Indians/Alaska Natives. 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 of 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!
How to celebrate Indigenous Pink Day with us on Thursday, October 19:
Wear pink to honor breast cancer warriors and survivors and to spread awareness.
Share a picture of yourself on social media wearing pink using #IndigenousPink. Tell your friends and family about Indigenous Pink Day and ask them to wear pink.
Encourage your organization or business to wear pink.
Talk to your health care provider for advice and information on breast cancer screenings.
Change your Facebook cover photo.

Any amount helps the American Indian Cancer Foundation continue to work towards eliminating the cancer burdens on American Indian families through education, prevention, early detection, treatment and survivor support.
