Abstract/ Summary

Portland, Maine will decide on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, whether to transition from celebrating Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day. Bangor voted for the switch in August this year, and Belfast first changed recognition in 2015. Several states and independent cities across the U.S. have also made the choice to change this celebration as well.
