Governor Newsom Issues Proclamation Declaring Indigenous Peoples Day

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom yesterday issued a proclamation declaring October 12, 2020, as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” in the State of California.  The text of the proclamation is below:




PROCLAMATION

For the second year in a row, California proclaims today as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Today we celebrate the Indigenous peoples who call California home and who have survived and thrived in the face of unimaginable challenges to shape California’s past, present and future.

This year, as the nation reflects on our collective history, we honor the truth-telling of Indigenous peoples who have long advocated for us to embrace a fuller vision of our past. From highlighting the Native American rights movement’s occupation of Alcatraz to the important reconsideration of what figures are worthy of statues and monuments on display on state properties, Indigenous peoples have compelled us to shape a society more reflective of our values as Californians.

Our state is home to one of the largest and most diverse populations of Indigenous peoples anywhere in the United States. In addition to the many Indigenous peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, others crossed borders and oceans to get to California, and some made their home here as a result of federal policies that forced the mass relocation of Native Americans westward.

Since the first contact with Europeans, peoples indigenous to California have lived their lives in defiance of forces of oppression, violence and discrimination, including the genocidal “war of extermination” directed by California’s first governor. It is in recognition of that dark history that the State has taken steps toward reconciliation and greater equity for California Indigenous peoples. California has taken action to convey ancestral lands back to tribes for preservation of cultural resources; reassessed geographic place names, statues and monuments to better reflect our state’s values; and built upon last year’s formal apology to California Native Americans by establishing a Truth and Healing Council to embark upon the journey of healing together.

Reckoning with this past is essential to advancing justice and equity for California Native peoples today. We are faced with the stark reality that Indigenous peoples are being disproportionately impacted by the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and make up many of the people on the front lines – tribal leaders making sure elders and communities are cared for, farmworkers ensuring that we have fresh food on our tables and medical personnel treating those who have fallen sick. As the state faces historic wildfires, Indigenous peoples have fought fires, provided shelter and shared traditional ecological knowledges of cultural burns to prevent future large-scale fires. And, in the midst of these challenges, Indigenous families continue to be impacted by the federal government’s xenophobic immigration policies, and construction of a border wall could threaten cultural resources.

In the spirit of reconciliation and reexamination, I encourage all Californians today to take time to celebrate Indigenous peoples rather than the forces that tried, and failed, to eradicate them. Let us reflect on how their resistance and persistence has shaped California for the better.

NOW THEREFORE I, GAVIN NEWSOM, Governor of the State of California, do hereby proclaim October 12, 2020, as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.”

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of California to be affixed this 12th day of October 2020.

 

GAVIN NEWSOM

Governor of California

ATTEST:

ALEX PADILLA

Secretary of State

          Burn Loot Murder
          Strange how BLM activist are too scared to go to places like Chicago and talk to their own where they have no problem killing each other. Yet when a black shoots at a cop, and the cop shoots back, they riot? A cop is more liable to be murdered by a black than a black murdered by a cop by over a 250% margin.
          For being only 13% of the population, the commit by far more murder and violent crime then any ethnic group, much more than the Europeans who came here and commit genocide on the natives. What's with you whites and trying to take out entire ethnic groups? No wonder riots are happening all across America. White Democrat Bobbleheads trying to make amends for the KKK and Black's thinking it's Republicans who started the Klan, just too funny of the stupidity of it all.

    Actually the ancient Mormons were the first to sail across and settled in Middle American and ventured northward. Then they ended up in Palmira New York at first and then ventured westward.

      Yeah right, mormons. Sixth Century — Irish Monks: This "theory" is actually more of a legend. A sixth-century Irish monk named Saint Brendan supposedly sailed to North America on a currach — a wood-framed boat covered with animal skin. His alleged journey is detailed in the ancient annals of Ireland. Brendan was a real historical figure who traveled extensively in Europe. Others say China, and others Vikings.

        Wrong. Actually the ancient Mormon migration took place much earlier than that and then someone ventured north and buried the original Book of Mormon and was discovered in a grove of trees in Palmyra NY in the early 1800's.

Warmest well wishes to Grand Premier Trump this Columbus Day. Mr. Trump or his Indian name “Wet Pebbles,” which comes from him pissing on his tiny balls due to the small nature of his penis.

Getting back to the Mormons, if you believe any of their propaganda you will end up in hell, they have their own edition of Christianity which is completely false! For openers, if anyone truthfully believes God and Jesus appeared to a 14 yr. old kid, and blessed his ideas need to read the Bible, not the one Joseph Smith wrote, to fit his bizarre ideas. JS had numerous wives, some we’re alll ready married, and he simply doesn’t fit the bill of someone Christ would meet with. Psychedelic mushrooms maybe!

      PS You need to have some tolerance towards other Christian religions and if your faith is really strong, you also would have been able to discover those tablets and Christ as Joseph Smith did and no matter what age. That means your faith is really strong and you're on the right track.
