Today I had the honor of joining Indigenous Strong: Maryland for Indigenous Peoples Day to celebrate the first of many Indigenous Peoples' Days in Baltimore City after the City Council's unanimous passage of this law.

On this day, we have an opportunity to recognize the long history and resistance of indigenous people in our city. Thank you to the countless organizers who have pushed for this over the years, to the middle schoolers who first encouraged me to introduce this bill in 2016, and to Councilman John Bullock for sponsoring it this year.

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!
