Full circle

A prayer circle was held in front of the Reno federal building on Oct. 8 to mark Indigenous People’s Day, a commemoration begun by the American Indian Movement. The crowd numbered about 60. Last year, the Nevada Legislature approved an amended measure to make Indigenous People’s Day a day of observance in Nevada, though it designated Aug. 9 for the purpose. As originally introduced, the commemoration would have replaced Columbus Day on Oct. 8.
