In 2010 a bill was passed to change the name of “Columbus Day (día de la raza)” to “Cultural Diversity Day”.

On October 12th 1492, two completely different cultures met developing the global economy and unleashing the land of the Americas.This contact between Europe and America, the meeting of the two worlds, culminated in a big transformation in European and American lives.

Today the  “Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity”, seeks to promote dialogue for cultural diversity guaranteeing respect for the diverse identity and the right to bilingual and intercultural education. It is a day to celebrate and reflect the various cultures of the Americas.
