Indigenous people protest on Columbus Day

Indigenous people protest on Columbus Day”

More than 130 cities also observe Indigenous Peoples' Day alongside or instead of Columbus Day. They're taking the same approach this year, focusing on projects that include finding a place to reinstall the statue dedicated to Columbus that was toppled in Civic Center Park in June.

For Melvin Sisto, a Hopi studying political science at Fort Lewis College, it seems appropriate to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day on a campus where 45% of the students are members of Native American tribes or Alaska Native communities. It is in recognition of that dark history that the State has taken steps toward reconciliation and greater equity for California Indigenous peoples. Given that the movement has been active for quite some time, and the removal of statues of him over the summer began to pick up and the conversation about his true legacy is far more mainstream than it once was, it could be that sooner, rather than later, the entire United States honors Indigenous people on the second Monday in October every year. For many critics, the existence of the statue signals at most, tacit support for imperialist and racist enslavement, rape, and murder perpetrated by Columbus and his compatriots, and the least, a disregard for how Native Americans among us remember the historical figure.

For many Italian-Americans, Columbus Day is a celebration of their heritage.

Monday marks the day that explorer Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas back in 1492, which is now celebrated as Columbus Day. Today we celebrate the Indigenous peoples who call California home and who have survived and thrived in the face of unimaginable challenges to shape California's past, present and future. Consequently, in 1934, Congress asked the president to make a yearly proclamation honoring Columbus. Last week, the city's mayor said the monument would not return to its usual perch.

"I think it's good to recognize the people who were here before". He has entered federal litigation over the monument that was removed in West Orange.

Growing up, Davis says, she learned about the meaning of the Confederacy, but she never learned anything negative about Columbus's legacy.

Conversely, Columbus, Ohio-which was named after Christopher Columbus-took down its 20-foot-tall Columbus statue in July.

The southwest of Colombia that borders Ecuador and the Pacific has a large Indigenous population and is one of the worst affected areas by a wave of violence that has resulted in at least 42 massacres this year, according to the United Nations. The group was founded by Irish-Catholic immigrants to the U.S.

"What really brought me here is the conversation between white and black, and whether whites or Blacks do or don't get along on Native lands", he said.
