I was reading The Seattle Times today. There was an article about changing Christopher Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day.

They also would never celebrate at the expense (pain) of others. I say - change it!

The Minneapolis City Council has given Columbus Day a new name: Indigenous Peoples Day. The resolution drew cheers from Native American residents who packed the City Hall chamber today. "We discovered Columbus, lost on our shores, sick, destitute, and wrapped in rags. We nourished him to health, and the rest is history," said Lakota activist Bill Means. "He represents the mascot of American colonialism in the western hemisphere. And so it is time that we change a myth of history."

Minneapolis to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day as Columbus Day alternative - Rename Labor Day as GREEDY Peoples Day?
Best *** news I've heard in a donkey's age. I think that naming it Indigenous Peoples Day is long, long overdue, and if we really do need to have a day to honor the contributions of Italian Americans in the building of this country, then let's create one in the memory of Enrico Fermi, or Guglielmo Marconi, or Fiorello La Guardia. Those people are worthy of our admiration. Columbus was guilty of genocide and arguably one of the most putrescent and odious individuals ever to walk the Earth. Might as well have a day dedicated to Heinrich Himmler as to Columbus.
In what seems destined to become a new battleground in some culture war, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously passed a resolution renaming Columbus Day as 'Indigenous Peoples Day.'
Way to go, Minnesota, for joining the ranks of several other states and not celebrating Columbus Day; opting for the alternative and more appropriate Indigenous Peoples Day. I haven't celebrated Columbus Day in years, since at least 1993 when we started homeschooling. Glad to know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
So...Minneapolis changed Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. I say we start a movement to do this in Milwaukee...who's with me??

Wow, didn't realize ours was first. Canadian Thanksgiving The very first Thanksgiving celebration in North America took place in Canada when Martin Frobisher, an explorer from England, arrived in Newfoundland in 1578. He wanted to give thanks for his safe arrival in the New World. This means the first Thanksgiving in Canada was celebrated 43 years before the pilgrims landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts! Thanksgiving for Canadians is about giving thanks for the harvest season rather than the arrival of pilgrims. Both Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with parades, family gatherings, pumpkin pie and a whole lot of turkey! Columbus Day Columbus Day is a holiday in honor of the explorer who first came to the New World on October 12, 1492 - Christopher Columbus. Since 1920, Columbus Day has been an annual holiday. Columbus wasn't really the first person to see America so some peeps call the holiday Native American Day or Indigenous Peoples Day since Native Americans lived in North America long befor ...
