“My land is where my people lie buried” is one of the famous quotes that came out of Crazy Horse. This coming Monday is a very controversial holiday in America, Columbus Day. Many people don’t feel that it should be acknowledged because of his actions towards Native people and the fact that he discovered the Bahamas, not America. While others believe Columbus Day should be a holiday to honor a brave explorer who discovered routes to the Americas and his willingness to go to the edge of the world. What do you think about Columbus Day?
