MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There's an effort across the state to recognize today as Indigenous People's Day.
A group of fourth graders in Milwaukee this year went through the legislative process to get the day recognized in Milwaukee County. They're now getting help from State Representative David Bowen to get the day recognized statewide.
"It's important that we recognize our true history of how our country became a country and recognize the true people that were here before us," said State Rep. David Bowen.
Native American leaders tell us that Indigenous People's Day is long overdue and is a day that should celebrate the state's diverse history and culture.
