It seems many places in America are over Christopher Columbus. Native American groups and others are continuing their push to change "Columbus Day" to "Indigenous Peoples Day."
And their efforts are being noticed. Last year, city officials in Seattle changed the name of Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. This year, several other cities followed suit.
