Spokane celebrates second Indigenous Peoples' Day

SPOKANE, Wash.—Monday was the second time Spokane celebrated Indigenous Peoples' Day.

In August 2016, the Spokane City Council voted to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day.

Last year, more than 100 people attended the Indigenous Peoples' Day celebration in Spokane.

This year the Moscow City Council also voted to change the name to Indigenous Peoples' Day.

Columbus Day became a federal holiday in 1937.

City of Spokane officials said parking meters do not have to be plugged on Monday because of the holiday. Garbage pickup and curbside recycling will proceed as normal.
