Columbus Day
Sometime history needs rewriting

To the Editor:
In response to a letter in the Oct. 4 Tribune: Sometimes history needs rewriting.  So much of what we learned in school has been sugar-coated to make certain events and people look better than deserved.  As for indigenous peoples oppressing women and engaging in slavery, it might be noted that Columbus and those who followed him did no better.
The Arawaks of the Caribbean were decimated and enslaved as a source of wealth for the European explorers. This does not make for good history book reading, does it?
