Christopher Columbus vs. Leif Eriksson
As you know, yesterday was Dia de las Culturas in Costa Rica. In North America, this is called “Columbus Day” and it celebrates the discovery of the New World by Columbus. However, as we know, the New World was already discovered by indiginous peoples that had lived here for thousands of years. Additionally, there is pretty good evidence that the Vikings actually “discovered” the New World long before Columbus did.
Here is a short video that explains the history of Leif Eriksson and his discovery of Canada. Enjoy!
