In the coming months, we will do outreach to members in all of Western Mass and will be planning a celebratory event either in-person or virtually. We hope to see you there and hear about efforts all over the state to change names, mascots, and other ways people are attempting to decolonize with guidance from the local Indigenous community.
Pioneer Valley Green-Rainbow Chapter Has Changed its Name
(From their Facebook page, October 10, 5:59 pm)
Blessings to all who observe Indigenous People's Day! In an effort to decolonize our name, our chapter voted tonight to become a regional, but also to drop the offensive and colonial reference to "Pioneer" and become the Western Mass Regional Chapter!
