New Mexico, USA celebrates its first Indigenous Peoples’ Day – – Monday, October 14, 2019

New Mexico, USA, officially marked its first Indigenous Peoples’ Day on Monday, October 14, 2019.

Governer Michelle Lujan signed a bill this year creating this significant holiday.

Lujan Grisham said in a statement Wednesday that she was “proud” to legalize this new holiday:

“This new holiday will mark a celebration of New Mexico’s 23 sovereign indigenous nations and the essential place of honor native citizens hold in the fabric of our great state,” she said.  “Enacting Indigenous Peoples’ Day sends an important message of reconciliation and will serve as a reminder of our state’s proud native history.”

From now on every year this legal public holiday will always fall on the second Monday of October.

A’HO to this !!
