To The Daily Sun,

Who are these indigenous people some want us to celebrate instead of Columbus? I don't know and really no one else does either. Archeologists have indicated that the tribes that were in place here in North America when Europeans arrived were only the latest to occupy "their" territory having displaced some others before them. Even they were not the first as waves of new tribes pushed others aside in a kind of centuries-old dominos effect. We Europeans are simply the latest wave so doesn't that make us the current indigenous people?
