Indigenous Peoples Day celebrated alongside Columbus Day in US

 


More cities are recognising Native Americans on Columbus Day this year as they revive a movement to change the name of the holiday and celebrate the history and contributions of indigenous cultures.

As the US observes Columbus Day on Monday, it will also be Indigenous Peoples Day in at least nine cities, including Albuquerque; Portland, Oregon; St Paul, Minnesota; and Olympia, Washington.
