Rename Columbus Day - Narrative Network

We salute the Lenape people, the original people of New York City during this time. Do you know any facts about the original people of your neighborhood? Feel free to share it! American history is so amazing if we included the many missing chapters, especially about the original people's history! We honor the Indigenous people's traditions and prophecies. It's about time for New York to delete Columbus Day. He did not discover America! So many other US communities have already done it. Here's a post that I wrote a few years ago about renaming the holiday.

The push to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Remembrance Day continues in more cities. What's your vote? Is there a middle ground?
