On Monday, President Joe Biden became the first sitting president to officially acknowledge “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” in place of Columbus Day, much to the excitement of woke Twitter users and politicians alike.
It took 232 years but, thanks to President Biden, Indigenous Peoples Day will finally be commemorated this Monday.
The FIRST President to do so.

The Biden White House will be the first to officially commemorate Indigenous Peoples’ Day this coming Monday. This gives White House backing to efforts to refocus the federal holiday celebrating Christopher Columbus toward appreciation of Native peoples. https://t.co/qJVQaG5NVO
