Change Columbus Day to Native American Day sign now

We, the undersigned, petition the President of the United States, The U.S. Congress, and The U.S. Senate to hereby change "Columbus Day" to "Native American Day".

Christopher Columbus did not discover America, he discovered Native Americans living peacefully in their homeland. And, as history has taught us, Mr. Columbus was not even the first to visit America from Europe.

So, then why do we continue to disgrace Native Americans by throwing this "National Holiday" up in their faces? It's about time we realize that as Americans we are continuing the hate cycle by allowing this to continue. We should be thanking Native Americans for taking us in and sharing with us their ancient wisdom.

We have never had a Native American holiday in the U.S. and that is truly a shame. We deem anything we want as a "Federal Holiday" if only for the benefit of government employees having yet another 3-day weekend.

Let us give credit where credit is due. We urge you to change "Columbus Day" to "Native American Day".

    I agree that the Columbus Day holiday should have its named changed to Native American Day. The idea of celebrating Columbus Day is just another example of how throughout history undue credit is given to people who do not deserve it. When Columbus made it
