Columbus/Indigenous People's Day

Columbus/Indigenous People's Day

Columbus Day, which is on the second Monday of October, remembers Christopher Columbus' arrival to the Americas on October 12, 1492. This holiday is controversial because the European settlement in the Americas led to the demise of the history and culture of the indigenous peoples.

Indigenous Peoples' Day is a holiday that celebrates the history and contributions of the indigenous peoples of North America.
