Happy Indigenous People’s Day! Formerly known as Columbus Day, the annual observance is a reminder of just how inaccurate and/or deceitful written history can be. While the focus has always been on Columbus’ discovery of the ‘New World,’ no mention was made of the thousands of Indigenous people who died at the hands of the conquerors, or as history puts it ‘the explorers.’ This is what happens when history is allowed to be written by one narrow perspective. It’s a lesson we should take when quickly dismissing Critical Race Theory — which holds that racism is embedded in legal systems and other policies. Denying the reality only makes history more digestible for a select group and gives everyone else acute indigestion, and more; Blowing up the bridge to Crimea made Putin beyond angry.
