Yspilanti, Michigan, the home of Eastern Michigan University, may become the next city to drop Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous Peoples Day. The town's mayor, Amanda Maria Edmonds said in a resolution that "dislocation, disease, war, disenfranchisement, and other atrocities devastated" the native people of the western hemisphere.
It is not known if Ypsilanti plans to celebrate the proposed Indigenous Peoples Day with Aztec and Mayan-inspired human sacrifices.
