October 12 is Indigenous Peoples' Day, a holiday that celebrates and honors Native American peoples and commemorates their histories and cultures.
Major League Soccer’s all-time leading goal scorer Chris Wondolowski is the son of a Native American mother and is a proud member of the Kiowa Tribe. He has a tattoo across his chest with his Kiowa name, "Bau Daigh," which translates to "Warrior coming over the hill.”
The San Jose Earthquakes legend will be part of a digital Q&A with leaders from the Indian Health Center of Santa Clara Valley on Monday as part of Indigenous Peoples' Day.
