Columbus Day is celebrated on the 2nd Monday of October in most states in the U.S.  Here in South Dakota we celebrated Native American Day on this day.  And I'll be honest, I guess I've never really sat down and considered exactly what this day is like for an indigenous person.

In an eye opening fashion Mark Charles explains, in this video, what it feels like to be a Native American in the United States.  He explains why he published this youtube:

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, and landed on the shore of my grandmother's house. It is my prayer to Creator that he will use this video to initiate a conversation that will lead to reconciliation between the citizens of the United States of America and the indigenous hosts of this land.
