Should Columbus Day Become Indigenous People's Day?  Is Honoring Columbus Disrespecting Indigenous Peoples?

According to History at history.com: "Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492.  It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century, but did not become a federal holiday until 1937.  For many, they holiday is a way of both honoring Columbus' achievements and celebrating Italian-American heritage.  But throughout its history, Columbus Day and the man who inspired it have generated controversy.  Many alternatives to the holiday have been proposed since the 1970s including Indigenous People's Day, now celebrated in several U.S. states."  With reference to UU principles (the inherant worth and dignity of every person and justice, equity, and compassion in human relations), we will explore the controversy and alternatives.
