Happy Indigenous People’s Day
Old habits die hard, but ever so slowly, cities are beginning to acknowledge the true “discoverers” of America, the Native Indians. Just as southern states continue to work on addressing the pain brought by honoring historical figures that caused so much suffering and racism, so too must all of us address the realities of Christopher Columbus.
We must continue to work on the racism that works at an institutional level. Whether removing iconic monuments, renaming schools or renaming and refocusing our pride in holidays, we must continue to move forward.
