Everything to know about the NYC Indigenous Peoples Day celebration 2018

This morning, Trump tweeted out a link to the proclamation along with the message, "Christopher Columbus's spirit of determination & adventure has provided inspiration to generations of Americans". The states of Alaska, South Dakota, Minnesota, Vermont, and OR and cities like Austin, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and over 50 others have all dropped Columbus Day references and replaced the holiday with Indigenous Peoples' Day. The exception is bond trading, which pauses for the day.

Like with banks, the post office is closed on federal holidays, so there will be no mail on October 8 this year.

Columbus Day is just hours away which means celebrating the Italian explorer for some, but distress for others who are upset over treatment of indigenous people. The move will let it do more to observe Veterans Day, the city says. South Dakota, California, Nevada, Oregon and Hawaii do not generally observe Columbus Day, and several other states continue to be added to the list. Public schools in Columbus are open on both Columbus Day and Veterans Day, according to the school district's calendar.

As residents of this nation, we all must reconcile with the violent past that is entombed within American history - lest we forget, only to repeat our violent indiscretions.

When asked how the city made the change, and whether it had done so through a process that was open to public debate, Davis said the decision to stay open on Columbus Day "was agreed upon by all of the unions that represent city workers during regular contract negotiations over the previous year".

Columbus announced last week that it won't be closing for business, saying it prefers to emphasize Veterans Day instead. Not everyone is on-board with honoring Columbus.

Google to shut down Google
The incident also marks the beginning of the end for Google +, which the company plans to shut down over the next year. It said a bug in its software meant information that people believed was private had been accessible by third parties.

The NYC Indigenous Peoples Day celebration 2018 is free and open to all.

"I appreciate that for many people, including some Italian-Americans, the celebration of Columbus is viewed as belittling the suffering of indigenous peoples at the hands of Europeans". It's important to remember that if you deposit a check into an ATM on Columbus Day, it may take until the next business day to process.

"If you're mayor of a city and its name is Columbus, why wouldn't you capitalize on that?" Joseph Contino, board member of the Columbus Italian Festival, told the Associated Press.

The Columbus Italian Club posted a link on Facebook to a Dispatch article about the city's decision not to celebrate Columbus Day with a single thumbs down emoji as its lone commentary.
