The idea of replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day is 
not a new one, although efforts to remove the monuments that toasts 
Columbus who Kevin Gover, director of the National Museum of the 
American Indian in Washington describes as a “A killer and a slaver,” 
have gained tremendous momentum.  Indigenous Peoples Day was 
first proclaimed by representatives of native nations and participants at 
the United Nations-sponsored International Conference on Discrimination 
Against Indigenous Populations in the Americas in 1977. The declaration 
of this body was applauded and echoed by native peoples around the 
globe.  Indigenous peoples and their supporters are reclaiming history 
and correcting the narrative as they gear up for the yearly commemoration 
of Columbus' voyage, which they note actually marked the beginning of the 
European invasion of the Western Hemisphere and native resistance to it.  

So, while each October children in classrooms around the nation will 
dutifully recite their Columbus Day "facts": the ships (the Nina, the Pinta, 
and the Santa Maria.), the year ("In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean 
blue..."), we’ll reveal the truth that Columbus Day is in fact a celebration 
of colonialism.  But, we’ll reclaim the day as Indigenous Peoples Day, 
an occasion to debunk the myths of discovery and support the continuing 
resistance to domination of the original Nations.  
We’ll take you from the truth of African peoples interaction with the 
indigenous peoples of the “Americas” before Columbus, through the 
religious doctrinal basis of Christian/colonial efforts to assert dominion 
over Original Nations, that guided Columbus across the waters and 
remain embedded in our legal/political system.  We’ll provide the forum 
for indigenous peoples to tell their story, their history of their struggle for 
sovereignty and self-determination,  their resistance to conquest and the 
resilience of their sustainable relationship to the planet.
