It’s one of those holidays that only federal employees get to take off. We are watching Miss Isabel and Miss Olivia today. They are currently out with Grandma enjoying a play day with DW’s BFF and her niece,who is Miss Isabel’s age.
Whether you ascribe to your grade school teaching that Columbus discovered America in 1492 or, as a proud Scandinavian like myself, that Erik The Red sailed from Greenland to Newfoundland several centuries earlier is a matter of personal opinion. What is not in dispute, however, is that six cities have changed Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. Not surprisingly, they’re all heavily infested with batshit-crazy folk.
Nine More Cities Change Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day …Because America is Racist, or something
More cities in the United States on Monday will honor Native Americans — instead of celebrating the traditional Columbus Day — as an indigenous movement gains momentum.
Nine new cities decided this year to abolish Columbus Day and celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday, including Albuquerque, New Mexico; Portland, Oregon; St. Paul, Minnesota; Bexar County, Texas; Traverse City, Michigan; and Olympia, Washington.
Last year, the holiday was celebrated for the first time in Minneapolis and Seattle, encouraging Native American leaders across the country to push for a new holiday on the second Monday of October that recognizes indigenous people, the Associated Press reported.
Christopher Columbus and the New World
Can we still celebrate October 12 as an American holiday? One man, two narratives: 1. Born to a working-class wool weaver in the port city of Genoa, Italy, Cristoforo Colombo apprenticed as a sailor and went to sea as early as age ten. A self-taught and curious man, Colombo lived by his wits and rose in the heady world of 15th-century sea traders, until he hit upon an ingenious idea: He would outflank the Mohammedan Turks and reach the East Indies by sailing west across the Ocean Sea. After weathering nearly a decade of rejection and failure, in 1492 Colombo won the support of the Spanish Crown and set off on an uncertain journey that inadvertently opened a New World, laying the foundation for that most glittering daughter of the Western heritage: America.
