MPI MN DEI: Indigenous People’s Day

By: Jenny Ng, DEI Chair | Oct 8, 2021

MPI_21_DEI_OctImage175October 11 is Indigenous People’s Day. This day in history marks the landfall of Columbus in the Western Hemisphere. The first documented celebration was in 1792 when it was observed as Columbus Day. In 1977 there was a movement at the United Nations International Conference on Discrimination against Indigenous Populations in Americas to change the name of this observed holiday from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day. “Indigenous Peoples’ Day recognizes that Native people are the first inhabitants of the Americas, including the lands that later became the United States of America. And it urges Americans to rethink history.”

Several states, including Minnesota, now recognize this day in history as Indigenous People’s Day. 

Let’s continue this discussion in November as we explore more about our country’s Indigenous People when we watch and discuss the Indian Horse film. You watch on your own time and then come together for our DEI Community Chat on November 30 at noon.
