To: Mayor Bill De Blasio

Tell Mayor DeBlasio: Change Columbus Day to Indigenous People's Day

Reason for signing

  • Because I believe indigenous people should never be ignored!!! They should always be recognized and honored!!! The terror and horror they witnessed and experienced should never be swept under the rug. Their history and sacrifices should be recognized and taught in our schools. the horror they had to experience at the hands of invaders should also be taught in the true sense that it occurred. Indigenous People's Day should also be a day of memorials and not labelled a sale day!!!
