    I support changing Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day. The only people who celebrates it are school children. Do you know any adult that celebrates Columbus Day? No! Speaking as a former child, I’d much rather have a day devoted to learning about the rich history of natives rather than that horrible Spaniard. I read first-hand accounts of Columbus’ cruelty in college and was horrified. This just seems like a no-brainer. Nobody cares about Columbus Day, but an Indigenous People’s Day would mean so much to people.
