On October 13, 2014, the city of Minneapolis celebrated its first-ever Indigenous Peoples Day.  Last Spring the city council voted to substitute a  holiday focused on native people for the long-standing observance of Columbus Day. 

An event to mark the occasion was held at the American Indian Center on Franklin Avenue.  KFAI’s Rico Morales was there, and filed this report.
