Like the City of Akron did last year, now--Summit County has designated the first Monday of October, "North American First People's Day".

It comes after sustained efforts by students and teachers at The Lippman School in Akron, which has a long-standing cross-cultural partnership with the Northern Cheyenne Nation.

Ray Horner talked to Sam Chestnut, Lippman's Head of School, and their Curriculum Director, Matt Russ, about it today.
