BOSTON (WHDH) - Indigenous people and allies marched through the streets of Boston to demand larger recognition of Indigenous Peoples Day on Saturday.
Marchers are urging officials to observe the day as a statewide holiday that takes the place of Columbus Day.
The city of Boston has recognized Indigenous Peoples Day but fewer than a dozen states have declared it a paid state holiday.
