Native American Day versus Columbus Day

Dahle Communication

I wanted to post this last Monday (since it was Columbus Day in most of the U.S.), In South Dakota, we do not celebrate Columbus Day - we celebrate Native American Day. The reason for this seems simple: 10% of our population is Native American and the legislature wanted to acknowledge them instead of Columbus. When we celebrate Columbus Day, what are we celebrating? When we study Columbus, history books ignore a great deal of what he did.

Dahle Communication

Two years ago I wanted to have a website up where I could talk about my ideas regarding communication. Native American Day versus Columbus Day. In South Dakota, we celebrate Native American Day - the other 49 states - Columbus Day. Once I learned the entire history of Columbus and his treatment of Native Americans when he reached the new world, my thoughts on this matter got even stronger.

SELL YOUR KNOWLEDGE This is my overriding principle that came from years of hard knocks trying to get people to hire me to speak.
