We should celebrate the people who were here, who were treated abominably, whose lands were confiscated. Columbus the Conqueror and Resource Speculator for a European queen is not to be celebrated.

Because Indigenous people were the original founders of America. It's the right thing to do.

This would be a holiday I would be proud to explain to my children. Columbus Day is not.

We should honor the full history of this place and the people who inhabited, for many thousands of years, these lands we live on today.

My office is on Merrimac Street and i believe that it is not acceptable that the City of Newburyport continues to honor Christopher Columbus Day.
