Indigenous Peoples' Day is a holiday that celebrates the Indigenous peoples of America. It is celebrated across the United States, and is an official city and state holiday in various localities around the country. It began as a counter-celebration to the U.S. federal holiday of Columbus Day, which honors European explorer Christopher Columbus. Indigenous Peoples Day is intended to celebrate Native Americans and commemorate their shared history and culture.  In recent years there have been more cities renaming the 2nd Monday in October as Indigenous People's Day.  

What does that mean to you?  Is this a political correctness movement?  Has it gone too far?
