U.S. Congress: Replace Columbus Day with Native American Remembrance Day

We all know that Columbus didn't discover the American continents. Honoring him is based on a historical myth. On the other hand, we do know that European immigrants wiped out the peoples and cultures that had lived here for thousands of years. Let us stop pretending to celebrate a false idol and instead give a day to remembering those who suffered so much during the building of our nation, the First Peoples of this continent.
