Because muh indigenous people, who were not even the natives.
Happy Columbus Day!!!!
Well I'm an indigenous person. Born here with ancestors I can count as far back that landed here in the 1600s. That makes me as indigenous as F. Besides, for all Columbus did, the was in South America. Findings tell us the the Vikings were here way before Columbus. Happy Erik the Red Day lol.
Wait as that was further north? Like Canada? Happy Puritan Day yay!
