Hola Jean y Leslie,

Historically, many horrible things have happened, when a country or continent, have been colonized.
We need to learn from this mistakes.

Hola Goo,

Thank you for sharing!
Interesting, here in Peru we only commemorate the day but we don’t celebrate or relate to anything alike.

From the new words:
1) colonización is feminine noun

Very sorry about that, we have corrected the gender already.

Saludos,

Seattle y Minneapolis están celebrando sus primeros Pueblos Indígenas Día de hoy.
Unirse al creciente número de ciudades para elegir el día de Colón como el día para recordar
el daño causado a las tribus indígenas durante colonzation.

Dora Hasan Mekouar escribe en la Voz de América. Columbus planeó esclavizar las tribus que encontró en las Bahamas incluso la esclavitud sexual de muchachas sobre edad ocho.
Nací en Seattle. Apoyo la decisión. Se siente correcto.

Seattle and Minneapolis are celebrating their first Indigenous Peoples’ Day today –
the latest in a number of cities to choose Columbus Day as the day to remember the harm done to indigenous
tribes during colonization.

Dora Hasan Mekouar writes in Voice of America. Columbus planned to enslave the tribes he found in the Bahamas including the sexual enslavement of girls over age eight.

I was born in Seattle. I support the decision. It feels right
