Columbus Day, celebrated on the second Monday of October, commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas on October 12, 1492. Although Columbus was not the first explorer to arrive in the Western Hemisphere, his landing opened the way for Europeans to settle in America.

Columbus landed and claimed these new lands, prompting European settlement throughout the continent. The history of Columbus Day is complex and controversial. It marks the advent of European colonization in the Americas, which led to a significant decline in indigenous culture. While some people celebrate this holiday with parades, others call for its abolition due to these negative consequences.

In many places in the United States, Indigenous Peoples Day has replaced Columbus Day to honor and celebrate Native Americans. This day is now a symbol of how we’ve progressed as a nation and how we can continue to work to repair the effects of colonialism. For this reason, several states have renamed Columbus Day and made Indigenous Peoples Day a public holiday. These states include Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, and South Dakota, among others. Despite the controversy, Columbus Day marks an important date that we should not forget.

How to Celebrate Columbus Day

If you are one of those lucky people who do not have to work today, take some time to educate yourself about European exploration in the 15th Century and Native American culture. Both stories have an essential part to play in American history. Watch a documentary to learn more about the historical events surrounding Christopher Columbus. You could also purchase Native-made products to help honor Native American culture. Remember to share stories and talk about Native American issues to help raise awareness on social media. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #NativeAmericansDay, #IndigenousPeoplesDay, and #ColumbusDay.
