Since 2017, the City of Springfield has proclaimed October 14 as Indigenous Peoples Day. This year, the city raised the flags of two of Oregon's nine federally recognized tribes. The flags, from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, were gifted to the city.
