California Governor Gavin Newsom called the state's treatment toward Natives in the 1850s "a genocide."

“It’s called a genocide, that’s what it was, a genocide,” he said on Tuesday. "No other way to describe it, and that’s the way it needs to be described in the history books.”

Tribal leaders thanked him for apologizing.
