Indigenous People’s Day [Monday Memo]

What Is Indigenous People’s Day? Today is Indigenous People’s Day and Clifford Beers wanted to acknowledge this special day and provide information to further educate ourselves on our nation’s rich indigenous history. For hundreds of years various Indigenous communities have pushed for October 12th to be a day to honor the native peoples of what is now the United States as opposed to celebrating those responsible for the destruction of Indigenous cultures. The following article goes into the history of Indigenous People’s Day and all of the places in our nation that recognize it: Indigenous People’s Day: Rethinking How We Celebrate American History | Smithsonian Magazine The Land We Inhabit
