Indigenous People Day

Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a holiday that celebrates and honors Native American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures. 

The people who lived here before Europeans made their way to their “new world” deserve better lives and the rights that go with it. America needs its own truth and reconciliation movement to atone for the atrocities committed against indigenous peoples that forced them off their lands and killed thousands. Native peoples have a deep cultural contribution that cannot be ignored. May everyone understand.

  1. I am glad that they finally changed the name of the holiday. You should see Bailey Sarian’s youtube video on the trail of the tears. It’s really sad what they are put through. Columbus (not his real name) was a horrible person too.
