Why celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day?

Indigenous Peoples Day recognizes and celebrates the heritage of Native Americans and the history of their Tribes within the United States of America. By changing the holiday from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day, the holiday recognizes the historic and ongoing painful impacts that Columbus's and other European colonists' arrival in the Americas had on Indigenous peoples.
