Somerville Mayor Says City Will Observe Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Not Columbus Day
SOMERVILLE (CBS) – The city of Somerville is ditching Columbus Day for Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Mayor Joe Curtatone announced Thursday.
Somerville joins Cambridge and other places in New England like Portland, Maine and Durham, New Hampshire by choosing to recognize those who lived in the Americas before European colonization instead of Christopher Columbus.
“Columbus Day is a relic of an outdated and oversimplified version of history,” Curtatone wrote in Facebook post. “We all know there’s more to the story than a nursery rhyme.”
