LOS ANGELES VOTES TO REPLACE COLUMBUS DAY WITH INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY

L.A City Council voted today to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day in October. Those opposed to Columbus Day argue that his connection to slavery and violence makes him unfit and unworthy to celebrate. Other cities such as Seattle, Minneapolis, Berkeley and Santa Cruz have also replaced Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day. Columbus Day will remain a federal holiday.
