Do you have any objection to taking the day off of school for Columbus Day?
Asked at Haskell Indian Nations University on October 7, 2005
“Not really. It’s just another day out of school. It gives me another day to study, so I don’t mind.”
“Yes, I have many objections. I don’t see any reason for there to be a holiday for him. He’s probably one of the worst men ever. It’s ridiculous.”
“I think it should be changed to honor both Native Americans and Columbus, but it should still remain a federal holiday.”
“No, I don’t have any objections. I know people want to put a lot of politics behind it, but I just like to have the day off.”
