2023 Indigenous Peoples' Day Resources

ASCA Chats

Indigenous Peoples' Day was renamed from Columbus Day to address how American History glorified European violence against Indigenous communities. Additionally, it addresses the inaccuracies and harmful narratives associated with Columbus' legacy which credits his discovery of the Americas despite the existence of Indigenous communities. The name change was originally proposed at the 1977 United Nations conference; however, the change was not implemented until 2021.
