The powerful sound of the "huehuetl" drums drives Yaocuauhtli's sixth annual gathering called "Day of Indigenous Resistance." Held as a deliberate counterpoint to Columbus Day, which is also sometimes called "Day of the Races," or "Hispanic Day," the event on October 11th, 2012 was meant to highlight long-standing New World traditions, saying "We are Aztecas, Zapotecas, Mexicas, Toltecas, Huicholes, Trikis, Mayas, Incas, Tarahumara, etc," and encouraging everyone to express pride in their pre-Colombian identities.
