Columbus Day or Indigenous People’s Day? You Decide
This is not a new discussion. There is a holiday in October that celebrates the founding of the Americas. The holiday has been called Columbus Day but now some people think that the name needs to be changed to Indigenous Peoples Day.
There are cities in New Jersey that have passed laws that make the name change official. Should this happen in the Hudson Valley or the State of New York? The reason behind people wanting to change the name is because people are wanting to make others aware that by Columbus coming to the Americas in 1492, he represents a violent colonization of Western Civilization.
Do you think that there is any truth to this? Or have people once again, been offended by 'nothing?' Let us know what you think.
