LSA senior Cynthia Biro, treasurer of the Native American Student Association, talks about what the federal government calls Columbus Day, but others call Indigenous Peoples Day, with a group of passersby gathered on the Diag. “While it is important to get the facts and truth about Columbus and into the public, our primary aim was not so much a protest, but to embrace the day,” she said. “We took a positive stance in order to raise awareness about Indigenous contributions toward the creation of the Western world.” (BENJI DELL/Daily)
