Today we celebrate Indigenous People Day and Columbus Day. We are a country of many cultures. Honoring the contributions and wisdom of all people is key to how we thrive as a country. Native Americans have sustained life on this landscape for thousands of years, and we learn much from them. Italian Americans have contributed much to our country, and our culture is enriched from them. Disrespecting either harms everyone. Let’s take a few moments during this day to learn something new about native tribes from our area, such as the Lenape, and acknowledge the contributions from our Italian families.
