Minneapolis Changes "Columbus Day" To "Indigenous People's Day"

Posted: Apr 25, 2014 11:49 AM EST Updated: Apr 25, 2014 11:49 AM EST

(WCCO) It’s been debated for years, but now the city of Minneapolis has decided to change from celebrating Columbus Day to observing Indigenous People’s Day instead.

Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1937, though not all states observe it, including Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, and South Dakota.

The day has long been a hot button issue over whether it is offensive to the American Indian culture to credit Christopher Columbus with the discovery of America.

On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously to approve the proposal to rename the day Indigenous People’s Day.

The designation would be observed on all city communications.

This is a joke considering a month later Minneapolis and the rest of the nation will celebrate thanksgiving anyway.

I think the story of Thanksgiving can be left out since it's poorly documented.  I don't think there's anything wrong with a harvest celebration though. 

Yay for Minneapolis. Heart

Columbus day doesn't feel like a holiday anymore, at all.  This is a move in the right direction.
