Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day 2017! I’m proud that my home of Salt Lake City, UT has taken an important step of recognizing the importance of Indigenous people to the fabric of this country. Much of the lands we now live in were acquired through the forced removal of their original inhabitants. This change recognizes the contributions, history, and sacrifices made by the original inhabitants of Utah, including the Ute, Paiute, Navajo, Shoshone, Goshute, Hopi, Zuni and more.Efforts like Indigenous Peoples’ Day affirm that Native voices are being heard.Join with me in celebrating our strong and resilient Indigenous peoples, cultures and histories today!@nativesoutdoors
