L.A. City Councilman Wants To Establish 'Indigenous People's Day'

If City Councilman Mitch O'Farrell has his way, Los Angeles could be officially celebrating indigenous peoples in lieu of Christopher Columbus. On Friday, the L.A. Times reports that O'Farrell—a member of the Wyandotte Native American tribe—introduced a motion that asks city staff to look into making Indigenous People's Day a legal holiday in Los Angeles, which could possibly replace Columbus Day altogether.
