Santa Fe County Commissioners adopt Indigenous Peoples’ Day

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Santa Fe County Commissioners approved a proclamation declaring the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

Commissioners unanimously approved the proclamation.

The day is typically recognized as Columbus Day, but several cities, counties and states have made the move to change that.

The City of Santa Fe passed a similar resolution last year, while the Albuquerque City Council approved the same celebration back in 2015. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
