Indigenous People's Issues Today: Indigenous Peoples Day: Replacing Columbus Day

Don't get me wrong. I am pleased as punch that Kevin had the day off yesterday, and that I had one less day by myself with the kids all day. But I am quite supportive of the idea of Indigenous Peoples Day Replacing Columbus Day. Columbus Day is not a day to be "celebrated" when you think about the consequences for Native Americans.

This is really important and thanks for the reminder. Columbus Day sort of slipped by me this year (being home full-time with a toddler can do that) but I think it will be important to have an honest conversation about the day when our children are older.
