Indigenous Peoples’ Day – City Offices Open

Formerly and concurrently celebrated as Columbus Day, Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a federal holiday in the United States that celebrates and honors Native American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures.  Indigenous People’s Day was first celebrated in 1992, to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus in the Americas on October 12, 1492.  On October 8, 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden became the first U.S. President to formally recognize the holiday, by signing a presidential proclamation declaring October 11, 2021 to be a national holiday. It is celebrated across the United States on the second Monday in October, and is an official city and state holiday in various localities
