East Lansing Choose To Not Acknowledge Columbus Day
If you didn't know, October 10th or the second Monday of October is Columbus Day. This is where we celebrate Christopher Columbus and him finding the New World of America. Also some parts of the country have off from work or school because of it.
Columbus Day is also known in other parts of the country as Indigenous People Day celebrating the Native Americans here in America first. Also due to controversy surrounding what Columbus did when after he landed here has made East Lansing change the second Monday in October to Indigenous People Day. The people of East Lansing are not alone as Ann Arbor and Traverse City also celebrate it in the state.
