From: Tina Rau

RECOMMENDATION
Recommend that the Mayor issue a proclamation designating the second Monday in October in the City of Pacific Grove as Indigenous Peoples' Day.
DISCUSSION
The City of Pacific Grove does not designate Columbus Day as a City holiday.  However, given the significance of the Esselen and Ohlone peoples’ past (and present) habitation of the greater Pacific Grove region, changing the unofficial designation of the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day could bring awareness to the past, present, and future roles that our local indigenous peoples play in our daily lives.  Many municipalities around the nation have made this change.  Should the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force wish to make this recommendation, a sample proclamation is attached for consideration.
