H.R. 5473 was introduced but not passed in the United States Congress last year “to designate Indigenous Peoples’ Day as a legal public holiday and replace the term “Columbus Day” with the term “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.”

Records of the indigenous peoples of Maryland can be found at the Mayis Indigenous Records site of the Maryland archives.
