Holiday Reading Room "American Indian Day"

Want to bet Don the John ignores this long-standing holiday?
A somewhat sanitized version of history, but it's well-intentioned.
Also note it points out "Who could blame the Indians for fighting desperately to keep their homes and hunting grounds?", disputing the still-popular concept of Manifest Destiny which goes hand-in-hand with American Exceptionalism!
Why is this comic entitled "Every Day is a Holly Day" instead of "Every Day is a Holiday"?
Because it was given away to kids by grocers who sold Holly Sugar!
Illustrated by John Rosenberger, it's a unique pamphlet covering a number of American holidays, including both Lincoln and Washington's Birthdays (before they were combined into "Presidents' Day"), Mothers' Day (though not Fathers' Day), Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and a couple of holidays we've largely abandoned...Pan-American Day and American Indian Day!
We'll be presenting the other chapters on the dates they fall upon.
Watch for them!
