I am signing to bring recognition to the Virginia Indians that had their race changed by census takers. The history needs to be told. Mr Plecker wanted to rid Virginia of Native Americans by having Native American removed on their birth certificates, other states followed this example.

Columbus ( Colon) was a violator of human rights. He lied about his identity.
He was Portuguese not Italian !

We should. These people were here long before me and my ancestors. It is also the only truly American tradition. The rest of us all come from somewhere else.

It's time to honor these communities demanding sovereignty, recognition, and rights. It's time for IPD to replace Columbus Day.

I always felt it a shame that there is little awareness of the Lenni-Lenape people, in neighborhoods they'd lived in for centuries.

Thanks for adding your voice.
