 The anniversary of Columbus' arrival to America has become an international holiday, celebrated in many countries. In the case of Spain, it celebrates the ties to other Spanish-speaking countries. 

 In various American countries, the day is dedicated to the indigenous peoples and their resistance to European conquest. Venezuela, where it is called Día de la Resistencia Indígena (Day of Indigenous Resistance)  is one of those.
