History has always been written by the victors. The United States celebrates Columbus Day on 12th October everyday, to commemorate his “discovery” of America. But, was it really a ‘discovery’? Weren’t there original people on the soil when Columbus decided to begin a settlement there?

In this video, Native Americans are asked what they think of Christopher Columbus. And their reactions are quite contrary to what one would expect from an American who celebrates ‘Columbus Day’.
