October 11, the same day as Columbus day

(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, 08 OCT – Joe Biden is the first president to sign the proclamation of the Indigenous Peoples’Day, after having proclaimed Columbus Day on the same day, 11 October. It is the most significant effort so far to rebalance the holiday that celebrates Christopher Columbus with an appreciation for the courage and contribution of native peoples. “For generations, federal policies have sought to assimilate and remove native people and eradicate their cultures: today we recognize the resilience and strength of indigenous peoples as the immeasurable positive impact they have had on every aspect of US society.” Biden’s motivation.
