Indigenous Peoples’ Day seeks to acknowledge and honor Native Americans and their history. This day aims to inform people about the history of Native Americans and the mistreatment they faced throughout U.S history.
Indigenous Peoples’ Day was first observed in 1989 by the Governor of South Dakota, George S. Mickelson. Mickelson had backed a resolution to change the controversial Columbus Day to Native American Day, now known as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. It is observed annually on October 12th.
