Native Americans' Day 2018 (concurrent with Columbus Day)


Like slave-owners Washington and Jefferson, Christopher Columbus was a person of his time.
Moreover, like all persons of all times, Columbus possessed qualities to admire, and qualities to condemn.
In the century following Columbus' arrival in the Americas, 95% of the 70 million Native Americans were either killed by Europeans, or died from diseases brought by the Europeans.

Do not judge another person
until you have walked a mile
in their moccasins.
- Native American (various wordings)

It is not our differences that divide us.
It is our inability to recognize, accept,
and celebrate those differences.
- Audre Lorde

There is no neutrality.
There is only greater or lesser
awareness of one's bias.
- Phyllis Rose

Most everything in life
is about our point-of-view,
rather than any absolute.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
