You may have noticed that our delivery day option for Monday is listed as “Monday Oct 11th - Indigenous Peoples Day.”
In keeping with our inclusive policies and respect for all humans, we felt it was important to show our support for this more honest and accurate recognition of our nation’s history. As we become more aware of the issues and struggles faced by all minorities in our country, including the LGBTQ and indigenous communities, acknowledging Indigenous Peoples Day is an important part of that growth.
In 2019, Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles proclaimed October 14 as Indigenous Peoples' Day instead of Columbus Day at that month’s Charlotte city council meeting. The holiday is a counter-celebration meant to recognize the contributions of Native Americans instead of what critics call the violent history of colonization.
