Posted on 04/26/2014 6:41:05 AM PDT by massmike
Its been debated for years, but now the city of Minneapolis has decided to change from celebrating Columbus Day to observing Indigenous Peoples 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 Peoples Day.
The designation would be observed on all city communications.

These people are effing nuts. MLK was a liar, adulterer, whoremonger, plagiarist . . . let’s chance the name of his “Day” too
Oh and take away the “Dr.” What’s good for the goose
That’s quite a mouthful.
That said,I’m glad I’m at the end of my life and not just starting out.
The country that I grew up in no longer exists.
So, how do they celebrate “indigenous people’s day”? Do they raid each others’ neighborhoods and steal their women?
They should put their money where their mouth is,then! If they REALLY want to “take a stand”,just eliminate it as a paid holiday!
I doubt seriously our “leaders” would ever cost themselves a long weekend,though!
Minneapolis needs to deed their city property back to the Indians from whom their ancestors took it.
After five generations I feel a little indigenous
It’s like the northern liberal version of Lee-Jackson-King day in Virginia!
Stop the stealing of occupied Indian territory!
Let’s celebrate the day by enslaving another tribe!
Yep, let’s go around scalping people.
All those Minneapolis residents who are not Native American are encouraged to return to their countries of origin, at their own expense, of course.
Join the Knights of Indigenous Peoples.
They must have called 1 900 YT Guilt and been admonished:
Notice how the left is trying (and succeeding at some) to change the names of all our holidays. American traditions going away. Another step in getting rid of our country’s culture. Soon there will be nothing recognizable left.
What do they do, go around saying to each other, “Happy IPD!”?
