Indigenous people in Ottawa want to reclaim Thanksgiving Day, Columbus Day

 


It's a movement in many American jurisdictions, and now people in Ottawa's indigenous community want to reclaim Thanksgiving Day — also known as Columbus Day in the United States — to honour the cultures that existed in the Americas long before the arrival of Christopher Columbus.

The Odawa Native Friendship Centre held an "Indigenous Resistance Day" on Saturday, with a potluck, film screenings, music, and discussions.
