Happy First Peoples Day

Sam Smith - The term Indigenous Peoples Day was foisted upon us by the Berkeley city council back in 1992. It's the way they talk out there, but we don't have to follow suit. It's a stuffy term of the sort used by academics but we are free to use more simple and commonly understood phrases like First People or First Nation.
