Communities Celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day from Coast to Coast

HeadlineOct 14, 2019

Cities and states from coast to coast are celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day today, rejecting the official federal holiday of Columbus Day. Last week, Washington, D.C., became one of the latest of over 130 cities, counties and states to recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Sunrise ceremonies are being held this morning from Randall’s Island to Alcatraz. We’ll have more on Indigenous Peoples’ Day later in the broadcast.
