Legislators have approved a new official holiday in Tompkins County — Indigenous Peoples' Day.

The resolution was supported by several members of the public that came to speak, including Sachem Sam George, one of the 10 chiefs of the Cayuga Nation.

"Welcome to Cayuga territory, you've probably never heard that before," George said. "Some of you probably know where you are, some don't."

I would think at this point, we're all indigenous.

Maybe everyone can celebrate by portraying insulting stereotypes of the culture being recognized.

Nah.......that could never happen.
