    TULSA, Okla. - Monday marks the third year the City of Tulsa is celebrating October's second Monday as Native American Day.

    At least five states and Washington, D.C., have done away with Columbus Day celebrations in favor of an Indigenous Peoples Day, though the federal Columbus Day remains in place.

    Oklahoma has not done away with Columbus Day but the City of Tulsa celebrated its first Native American Day in 2017 after the holiday was approved by city council.

    The celebration begins at 9 a.m. Monday with an opening ceremony and introductions at Guthrie Green.

    Community leaders and guest speakers will take the stage before the parade begins at 12 p.m. The parade will be followed by cultural exhibition dancing.
