Indigenous Pink Day is, per the American Indian Cancer Foundation (AICAF), “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 on the importance of early detection and remind men and women to keep up to date on their screenings.”
AICAF suggests various ways you can participate:
- Wear pink “to honor breast cancer warriors and survivors.”
- Share a photo of yourself wearing pink on social media with hashtag #indigenouspink, or change your Facebook cover photo.
- Schedule your breast cancer screening appointment.
- Spread the word!
