Honoring Indigenous Peoples Day

 

More than 30 residents celebrated Indigenous Peoples’ Day at the Town Green on Monday, Oct. 11

A few days before the celebration, Friday, Oct. 8, President Joseph R. Biden signed a presidential proclamation declaring Oct. 11 as a national holiday.

The holiday honors Native Americans, along with their history and cultures and it started as a counter-celebration to Columbus Day, which honors Christopher Columbus.
