Celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day

If you remain neutral during times of injustice and oppression, then you too have chosen the side of injustice and the oppressor. Today is not a holiday to celebrate genocide, imperialism, and colonization. It is a day to celebrate Indigenous people across the world.

Transform Columbus Day!


  • Columbus is responsible for the murder of millions of indigenous people.
  • Columbus was a slavetrader in Africa before invading America. He began the slave trade in the Americas. He deserves no holiday, no parades, no statues.
  • Columbus Day celebrates the doctrine of discovery – the legal process that stole Indian people's territories, and that continues today.
  • Columbus brought a philosophy of domination to the Americas that persists today – domination of other peoples, domination of the environment, domination of other belief systems, domination of women by men (
A timeless piece to be shared and shared again by the Zinn Education Project:

Time to Abolish Columbus Day

Do what you can to decolonize, promote justice, and act in solidarity each and every day!!
