In 1492, Christopher Columbus got credit for discovering the American continents. Beginning that same year, colonizers brought chaos from Alaska to the Patagonia’s. Some countries celebrate Columbus Day (Día de la Raza “Race Day”) - the American and Hispanic heritage. Christopher Columbus played a major role in the destruction of the population of the indigenous peoples of the New World during his first two voyages, often regarding them as being humans of less worth. He displayed the utmost disrespect for their culture, and started enslaving the native inhabitants. Heritage represents the resistance of the Native Peoples of “The New World.”
