On March 2, 2021, Wellesley voters approved a non-binding referendum asking the Select Board to proclaim the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples Day and cease to recognize Columbus Day in Wellesley, in order to recognize the position of Indigenous Peoples as native to our land and the suffering they faced during and after the European conquest.
