'Taking Stand Against Racism and Discrimination,' Seattle Adopts Indigenous Peoples' Day

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

The Seattle City Council on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution to celebrate the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples' Day.

While the day is marked federally as Columbus Day, the resolution states the newly recognized day will be an opportunity for the city "to celebrate the thriving cultures and values of the Indigenous Peoples of our region."
