Indigenous Peoples' Day honors indigenous people every October

Posted at 9:00 AM, Oct 06, 2020

The Clark County Commission wants to celebrate indigenous people by marking the second Monday in October as a holiday in their honor.

Several states have already swapped out Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous Peoples' Day including Nevada.

The holiday celebrates their heritage and focuses on the contribution indigenous tribes made to the Americas.

The Clark County Commission will present a resolution on Indigenous Peoples' Day during their meeting this morning.
