Indigenous People’s Day

 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. 

AND an opportunity to honor the INDIGENOUS PEOPLE
