Two women — a Peruvian and an Indigenous Mexican — have been recognized as global culinary trailblazers.

What’s happening: Chef Pía León was named the world’s top female chef last week, and Claudia Albertina Ruiz Sántiz was highlighted as one of 50 world pioneers “shaping the future of gastronomy.”

  • León was acknowledged for her work in three Peruvian restaurants that spotlight the country’s biodiversity in their dishes, with fair sourcing of ingredients.
  • Ruiz Sántiz is being called a role model for defying discrimination in her country and her Tzotzil peoples’ tradition of women being only homemakers, with a restaurant that also gives training and jobs to Indigenous youth.
  • Both awards come from the organization 50s Best, which polls people in the industry to find the best restaurants worldwide every year.

What they’re saying: “It’s rewarding for them to recognize in this way how food can link roots, traditions, myths and our respect towards the earth. That our cuisines are so rich beyond their flavor,” chef Ruiz Sántiz tells Noticias Telemundo.

  • “This drowns out those voices that keep saying: ‘You can’t, you shouldn’t, you’re worthless because you’re a woman, because you’re Indigenous.’”

Biden becomes first president to commemorate Indigenous Peoples Day

President Biden on Friday became the first president to issue an official proclamation commemorating Indigenous Peoples Day.

The big picture: Biden's proclamation boosts efforts looking to shift the focus of the federal holiday celebrating Christopher Columbus to the contributions of Native Americans, AP reports.

Indigenous Peoples' Day in, Columbus Day out in Philadelphia

The upcoming long holiday weekend marks a first for the city.

What's happening: Philadelphia will officially recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day, rather than Columbus Day, on Monday.

The big picture: Philly is joining a growing number of cities — and states — that have ditched Columbus Day for some form of Indigenous Peoples' Day.

  • Native American groups have long pushed for the change due to concerns the Italian explorer helped bring about the genocide of Indigenous people in the Americas.
  • The transition has been met by backlash from some Italian Americans who celebrate Christopher Columbus as the nation's first Italian immigrant.

North Korea claims latest missile test new weapon launched from submarine

North Korean state media announced that a detected ballistic missile launch off its east coast on Tuesday was a newly developed weapon test-fired from a submarine.

Why it matters: Pyongyang's latest in a series of recent missile launches into the sea happened hours after U.S. officials emphasized their commitment to restart negotiations on North Korea's nuclear weapons program, which have stalled since talks broke down during the Trump administration, AP notes.
