Indigenous Peoples Day Recognized

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 3:06pm

Dr. Cornell Pewewardy, center, is surrounded by supporters of his proposal to recognize Indigenous People's Day on the second Monday of October, in the city of Lawton, Okla., which is also known as Columbus Day. He presented his proposal the evening of January 9, during the monthly Lawton City Council Meeting. He said the day can be used as a teaching tool and opportunity to help people learn about the Indigenous People of North America. The council approved the proposal, and the first celebration of Indigenous People's Day will be October 8, 2018. This was the second time Dr. Pewewardy presented his proposal to the Lawton City Council.
