The City of Houston celebrated Indigenous Peoples Day today by welcoming members of the Aztec Dance Group to the steps of City Hall. The City of Houston recognizes and values the historic, cultural, and contemporary significance and contributions made to this community by all our region’s past and present Indigenous Peoples.

Houston City Council recently passed a resolution recognizing the second Monday of October as “Indigenous Peoples Day” and today, I declared October 12, 2020 as Indigenous People’s Day in Houston. Thank you to Councilmember Robert Gallegos for leading this effort that recognizes our City’s American Indian and Indigenous Community.
