Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a holiday in the United States that celebrates and honors Native American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures. “Our whole state, Indiana, was named for being an area rich with different Native American tribes that lived here for over a thousand years before European settlers came to North America. The Wabash Valley Progressives want to acknowledge and pay homage to these indigenous peoples that came before us and make sure their history is told. We thought a good place to start would be discussing Tecumseh because of his connection to the Vincennes area,” says Will Drews, Wabash Valley Progressives President.
