Today, on Indigenous Peoples Day, we should all recognize our roles in promoting respect for and the inherent rights of indigenous peoples. It is urgent, now and always, that we stand with those who have been overlooked, oppressed and underrepresented. You are seen and heard, and we hope to continue to learn from you.

It's estimated that over 100 million natives inhabited this country when Columbus landed in 1492. To suggest that Columbus discovered the Americas is to suggest that those who inhabited it were nonentities. The main reason Columbus Day draws opposition is because of how the explorer’s arrival to the New World affected indigenous peoples.

The same thing in Australia on "Australia Day" or the more appropriate "Invasion Day". In New Zealand/Aotearoa, we have Waitangi Day which is a far more appropriate day because Maori and pakeha can celebrate the signing of the Waitangi Treaty together.
