"On Columbus Day, we honor the accomplishments of Christopher Columbus as well as the spirit of discovery, but some people wonder whether this is a holiday that should be celebrated at all. Children will learn about Columbus and his voyages, as well as the controversy surrounding his explorations of the Americas. While he opened up the Americas to exploration and settlement from Europe, it was at a great cost to the native peoples already living there. The people whom Columbus encountered during his first landing in the New World were called the Taino. The reflections of a descendant of the Taino reveals a different way ot thinking about this holiday. We can each decide for outselves how we want to recognize Columbus's explorations, but it is important that we also consider different perspectives"--Container.
