Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday celebrated on October 10th commemorating the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492.
Over the last few decades however, this celebration has faced serious controversy due to Christopher Columbus’ various horrific acts against Native Americans throughout his life as an explorer.
Because of this, many places in California, New York, Minnesota, Colorado, and more have transformed this holiday into Indigenous People’s Day.
This day no longer has to be a painful reminder, but a positive symbol of how we’ve progressed and evolved.
So, if you’re one of the lucky people who don’t have work today, now’s your chance to educate yourself on Native American culture and learn more about the origins of our nation!
