New Mexico Replaces Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day

 


New Mexico will no longer celebrate Columbus Day on the second Monday of October, instead opting for a holiday honoring Native Americans.

Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Tuesday signed a measure that creates Indigenous Peoples' Day and nixes Columbus Day from the list of official state holidays, according to the Albuquerque Journal. The bill sailed through the legislature earlier this year.
