Celebrating Indigenous People's day

Many cities throughout Oklahoma and the nation have passed resolutions to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day.

The University of Oklahoma and Norman community observed Indigenous Peoples' Day Monday for the first time in OU's South Oval.

Whether we rename the holiday in honor of Native Americans, or, as some have done, come up with a more universal celebration of cultural heritage, it's clear Columbus' 15 minutes of fame are up.

"We've gotten a little bit of flack about Indigenous Peoples Day and how we're disrespecting or not liking non-Native people because we don't want to recognize Columbus and Columbus Day", he said. Globalized corporate capitalism is the successor regime to European and US colonialism, with the same goal of wealth extraction.

"We want to make sure this policy is implemented because how we present social justice issues to our students is how we represent ourselves as educators to our students and the community", Suslovic said after Monday's hour-long gathering, which included speeches, poems and music. Columbus was an Italian-born explorer who set sail in August 1492, bound for Asia with backing from the Spanish monarchs King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, according to History.com.

Denver has made the choice to honor those who contributed to the creation of the city we call home today.

The speakers from "Turtle Island" or "Native North America" will speak to the "historical significance" of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and "how to move the discourse forward in the future". These locations point to the subjugation of Native Americans that started with Columbus arrival. "If they're going to celebrate Columbus, we need to celebrate the fact that we survived Columbus", Cliff Matias, director of the council, told the Associated Press. "Of course we should honor the indigenous people".

With signs in hand, Native American tribes raised awareness about who they believe Christopher Columbus really was.

Indigenous Peoples' Day is officially recognized by one county (Washtenaw) and five cities (Alpena, Ann Arbor, East Lansing, Traverse City, and Ypsilanti) in MI, and a total of 55 cities, four states, and three universities nationwide.

We invite all people to join us this year Saturday, Oct. 14, in this free, city-sponsored event in Martin Luther King Jr.

Trump's nod to Italians and not Native Americans comes as some liberal American municipalities are nixing Columbus Day for Indigenous People Day instead.

Berkeley, California became the first city to officially adopt Indigenous People's Day in 1992.

Most students aren't taught the full history behind Columbus Day in school, and even though my great-great-grandmother was Native American, I didn't learn it until college.

"It not only feeds our family, but it also feeds us spiritually", James said, "because we get to teach nephews how to harvest, we get to teach nieces, we get to teach sisters, we get to teach aunties".
