Biden Opts to Recognize Indigenous Peoples’ Day Over Columbus Day


Former Vice President Joe Biden is opting to ignore Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day—a holiday being embraced by progressives to honor Native Americans.

Biden’s campaign released a statement on Monday honoring Native Americans for having “kept faith with the rich spiritual traditions and heritage of their ancestors, often in the face of policies and violence that sought to strip them of both.”

Biden further added that his administration would seek to rectify the “unfulfilled promise” America had towards its original inhabitants.
