Mayor Genrich Declares the Second Monday of October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day
Green Bay, WI—Mayor Genrich joins over sixty other communities across the United States in declaring the second Monday of October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
In 1990, South Dakota was the first state to create “Native Americans’ Day” by a unanimous vote of their state legislature. Indigenous Peoples’ Day celebrates and honors Native American peoples, and commemorates their histories and cultures. On this day, representatives from the Oneida, Menominee, and Ho-Chunk nations will join Mayor Genrich as he recognizes the day and reads a proclamation.
On October 18, 23 and 28 the City of Green Bay will light the city’s downtown bridges in the colors of the three nations attending the ceremony.
