Seattle Chooses Indigenous Peoples' Day

Season 3 Episode 304 | 8m 39s | Video has closed captioning.

The resolution to change the name of Columbus Day stems from efforts that began in the 1970s by members of the American Indian Movement. Indigenous Peoples’ Day celebrates the many native tribes of the United States, and recognizes the fact that Columbus was not a hero to the native people, whom he sought to enslave upon his arrival.
