California Courts to Honor California Native American Day
State judicial branch, local court employees will be first public workers to celebrate “California Native American Day” as an official holiday.
Said California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye: “This coming Friday, Sept. 23, will be a first—a newly celebrated judicial branch holiday, our California Native American Day. The Judicial Council was proud to sponsor this landmark legislation authored by Assemblymember James Ramos last year. By honoring California Native American Day, we properly recognize the contributions and history of our state’s First People. The important day marks another step in our mission in the judiciary to provide equal access and fairness throughout our justice system—one in which all Californians feel welcome and are represented.”
