Vermont and Maine both passed bills last week that would change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The bills are awaiting the governors’ signatures. Several other states have passed similar measures, including New Mexico, Alaska, Minnesota, Oregon and South Dakota. “It’s time to stop celebrating a man whose arrival brought death, disease and slavery to hundreds of thousands, and start honoring the people who lived here long before,” said Oami Amarasingham, policy director at the ACLU of Maine.

  1. I wish the government and the Indians would admit the truth. Do a little research and you’ll discover that; A- Indians migrated to, what is now the U.S., about 15,000 years ago and B-in 1936 there was a metal axe found in London, TX that is 400 million years old. This axe is so old that the handle is starting to turn into coal. So, there’s something we’re not being told. The Indians never left the stone-age. How could they have drawn metal from rock and created the kind of heat it take to forge metal. In other stories, some Indians speak of giants who roamed the U.S. before the Indians came, but they were cannibals and were eradicated. They were said to roam the Ohio valley and upper WV. The Smithsonian is said to have taken many giant skeletons in their possession and disposed of them in the Atlantic ocean.
