County board to hold special meeting to consider Indigenous Peoples' Day resolution, Monday, Oct. 12

Fri, 10/09/2015 - 4:10pm

The Cook County Board of Commissioners, minus two members, will meet at 2 p.m. on Monday, October 12 to reconsider a resolution voted down on September 29. The resolution, to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day, was voted down by a vote of three to two, with Commissioners Garry Gamble, Ginny Storlie and Heidi Doo-Kirk voting against and Commissioners Frank Moe and Jan Sivertson voting in favor of the change.

Since then there has been a great deal of discussion and debate in online forums and at a special county board meeting that had been called for another matter. At that meeting, Commissioner Frank Moe called for another special meeting to reconsider the vote at 2 p.m. on Monday, October 12—the day of the federal observance of Columbus Day.

 At that time it was uncertain whether a quorum of the county board would be available, but the News-Herald talked to County Administrator Jeff Cadwell who said it appears a quorum of the board will be available. The meeting is open to the public.

The School District 166 school board unanimously endorsed a proclamation declaring that Monday, October 12, 2015 be recognized as Indigenous Peoples’ Day throughout the School District at their September 24 meeting.

The school board had previously discussed the initiative and in September 2014 the board voiced support for the idea of redefining the holiday after School Board member Deb White said the school board should follow the lead of the City of Duluth. At that time, the school board directed Superintendent Schwarz to compose a letter to Cook County and the City of Grand Marais asking them to support the initiative to recognize the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
