ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico is celebrating Indigenous People’s Day officially for the very first time. The holiday is, for some, replacing Columbus Day and honoring the contributions of Native Americans in this continent.
The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center hosted a celebration this Monday morning with traditional native dances from several New Mexico tribes.
The federal government still recognizes today as Columbus Day. New Mexico is one of several states that have replaced it with Indigenous People’s Day.
