The second Monday of October has been celebrated as Columbus Day since 1934. However, controversy over celebrating Columbus, given the effects of colonization on the native population of the Americas, has been steadily growing. So much so, that in 2021, President Biden declared that same date as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. At Maps101, we support efforts to educate students about the history of Native Americans. If you so choose to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples’ Day in addition to or instead of Columbus Day, we have a variety of content to support better understanding of life as a Native American, including an interactive Field Trip, GNN articles, and maps. First though, let’s take a deeper dive into what Indigenous Peoples’ Day is all about.
