Indigenous People’s Day Protests Take Place Across the World

Indigenous People’s Day protests were planned as part of a 3-consecutive day event involving 1492 Land Back Lane, the Indigenous Day of Rage, and now the Indigenous Peoples’ Day instead of Columbus Day, which is criticized by many for venerating a colonizer and a genocidal architect.
