Andre’ DiMino, the President of the Italian American One Voice Coalition, believes Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day falling on the same date isn’t fair to either group.

“Columbus Day should remain a federal holiday. We’ve got nothing against Indigenous Peoples’ Day, in fact we want to celebrate right along with them. They should have their own day, but it shouldn’t infringe upon Columbus Day and pit two groups against each other,” DiMino told Currents News.

“What people are saying about Columbus, the atrocities and so forth are really just not true. Those have been disputed by verifiable facts and primary sources. Those are things that have been tried as part of cancel culture,” he continued.
