Happy Indigenous People’s Day - Monday, October 10!

Today is National Indigenous People's Day, part of a national movement to replace Columbus Day. Why? Because most First Nations consider Columbus & 1492 to be the beginning of white colonization and the systematic genocide to steal their land, decimate their people, and destroy their cultures.



Below is a link to a great Smithsonian Magazine article about Indigenous People’s Day and the discussion involving the Columbus Day-Indigenous People’s Day issue:
