The post office will be closed on Monday October 9th, but not much else.
On the Southern Oregon University campus, Indigenous Peoples Day will be observed instead, with a variety of ceremonies.
Lupe Sims is the student who advocated for the observance.
She and Four Arrows, former director of Lakota University, are our guests.
