Please visit the Columbus Citizens Foundation site for complete details and sponsorship.

I celebrate Columbus Day too. He brought the continents together and did nothing that the native people weren't already doing themselves. Did you know that Native Americans in South Dakota celebrate Frontier Days. What hypocrites. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Columbus never killed a single person in his life.
