On October 8, 2021, U. S. President Joseph Biden declared that
October 11th will be celebrated as Indigenous People’s Day.
As a person descended from the Ottawa Indians, I appreciate that people be reminded that our people were here to greet those who “found” this continent all those years ago. In fact, my Great-Great Grandfather was an Ottawa Indian Chief.
So, may this day be a celebration of life with music, food, dance, and worship with family & friends.
