Outraged Italian Americans: Columbus Day loses to Native Americans?


A City Council committee Monday will consider a proposal to replace Columbus Day with a city holiday that celebrates Native Americans instead of the European explorer, Christopher Columbus, amid opposition from Italian American groups.

If the Los Angeles City Council moves forward with the recommendation by the city Human Relation Commission, the city would join several other cities around the country that have swapped out Columbus Day for a new holiday known as Indigenous Peoples Day.

The issue will first be taken up on Monday in the Arts, Parks and River Committee.
