It would be a shift in perspective, which some people don't really like. Why should we always see and define everyting from our view and perspe ctive? I think celebrating it as Columbus day perpetuates a false image of Columbus and the European invaders as some sort of grandiose explorers and discoverers when they actually came and took land from other people, killing them and enslaving them. That's why the name change is being made. I think it#s good, let's move away from the dominant perspective.
