So, I’ve noticed lately that there is a holiday coming up in South Dakota (where I live now) that I’d not heard of before- Native Americans Day. And then I actually looked at a calendar, and realized it is the state’s replacement for Columbus Day. By now most Americans know that Columbus wasn’t the greatest guy, but if you need a refresher (or, you know, you aren’t from the Americas), this pretty much sums it up. While there are two other states with a Native Americans/American Indians Day (California and Tennessee), South Dakota is the only one to have replaced Columbus Day with it.
If you happen to be in the area, there’s going to be a celebration on Monday at Crazy Horse Memorial, with lots of noms and dancing. Oh, and they’re going to explode a part of the mountain.
