BEMIDJI -- While Columbus Day will still take place next Monday, the city of Bemidji is once again joining a movement to acknowledge the second Monday of October as Indigenous Peoples' Day.

At the onset of the City Council meeting Monday, Bemidji Mayor Rita Albrecht read a proclamation announcing the official recognizing of Oct. 14 as Indigenous Peoples'/Treaty Day. The announcement comes three years after the last recognition of Indigenous Peoples' Day in 2016 by another proclamation.
