Seattle Changes Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day - TIME
gee, I wonder who's running things in Seattle? Where's my thinkin' cap?
I believe we can celebrate "Columbus Day" as the day when "America" first became possible-even if by coincidence. Columbus notwithstanding, even if he is the name attached to the day.
and I can imagine the speeches: Today, on indigenous people's day, we celebrate surrender, being tricked, and discovering that our stone age way of life could not exist when confronted with Renaissance/Modern peoples?
