Indigenous People’s Day is known to be a celebration that is meant to celebrate and honor the Native Americans. This is meant to help people remember the culture of the Native American People and the things that they have gone through in the past especially when other people started taking over in America.

This is now considered to be a local and state holiday in various states all over the United States. Some people may confuse this with Columbus Day but this holiday was actually created as a counter holiday. The main goal of this is to honor the things that the Native American people did before.

The Indigenous Peoples' Day is a day given as holiday, a day to mark, honor, and celebrate the Native American peoples, and a day to commemorate their cultures and histories. It is an official holiday that is legally accepted and recognized throughout the United States. Though used to be celebrated on the 9th August before it was changed to coincide with, or even replace the Columbus Day. The Indigenous Peoples' Day is now a celebration that is recognized internationally, though not throughout the whole world.

This world's International Day of celebrating indigenous peoples was preferred above the Columbus Day with some claims against the Columbus Day. It was considered that the Columbus activities in the United States brought about some diseases to the country, and it also enabled the slavery of many Americans. Therefore, the Indigenous Peoples' Day is considered as a cover-up or sanitation for these deeds that was brought about by Columbus.
