Here’s Why We Should Be Celebrating Indigenous People’s Day, Rather Than Columbus Day

This coming Monday, October 12 is Columbus Day - a national holiday that marks the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas back in 1492. But for many of us, it’s also a very painful day, as it brings up the violent history of colonial oppression at the hands of European explorers. Those wounds can still run deep, even today.
