Sunday, October 12, 2008
Activist/curator Nany Kayo and Virual Native Lands hosts an observation of the significance of Columbus' arrival in the Americas from a Native American perspective, on the beach at Commonwealth.
Columbus arrived in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492 setting off a chain of events that changed the world. The first Columbus Day celebration was held in 1792, in New York City. Columbus Day has been celebrated as a federal holiday in the United States on the second Monday of October since 1934, and is also celebrated as a state holiday in all but 17 U.S. states, at taxpayer expense.

For Native Americans, observation of Columbus Day is the remembrance of a holocaust. Peoples reactions range from pride, to defiance, to sadness, to indifference. Many Natives protest the holiday with varying degrees of irreverent humor or rage. Others' experience is beyond protest. All are invited to observe Columbus Day at the Commonwealth gathering.
There will be a memorial and celebration of the lives of the Arawak Taino people, who were nearly exterminated by Columbus and his crew within a few years of Columbus' arrival.
