About Indigenous Resistance Day
Indigenous Resistance Day is celebrated on October 12th of every year. Indígena, or indigenous, is a cultural and linguistic designation, not merely a national term. The term "indigenous" refers to people who not only have parents who came from Central or South America but who self-consciously identify themselves with a specific domestic group or tribe, speak the language, and practice the customs of that group. Many thousands of years after the first people arrived in North America, the Mayan empire first began to develop and eventually its influence spread through a network of city-states. Nicaragua takes its name from Nicarao, chief of the indigenous tribe that lived around Lake Nicaragua during the early 1500s. October 12th is widely celebrated as Columbus Day in 1492, when Christopher Columbus, representing the Spanish Crown, first arrived in the Americas. In 2004 the Venezuelan government officially changed the name to Indigenous Resistance Day.
