Columbus and I Make Discoveries

BY CATHERINE ONYEMELUKWE
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 12, 2015

Catherine Onyemelukwe joined the Peace Corps in 1962, when it was a new organization, and Nigeria, where she was assigned, was newly independent. 

Catherine's PechaKucha presentation on Columbus Day is connected to her memoir, Nigeria Revisited My Life and Loves Abroad, published in 2014. She shares her discoveries connected to Columbus and European "discoveries" of new land. Many Native Americans believe Columbus Day should be abolished, saying that to honor a man who "ushered in genocide against indigenous peoples as well as the transatlantic slave trade,” is not reason for a holiday. In 24 years living in Nigeria, Catherine discovered non-Western traditions that are rich and meaningful, just as Native American traditions are. Some were denied validity by British colonizers based on the Doctrine of Discovery, just as Native American's rights were denied by that Doctrine, first by the American colonizers and then U.S. leaders.

Growing Up in the Peace Corps

BY GEOFFERY HOWARD
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 17, 2017

Geoffery Howard   I entered the Peace Corps at the age of 20, heading off to Senegal in West Africa, a country I had never heard of. That experience changed my life. From community development in a small Senegalese village to community involvement in a small Hudson Valley town, there is a connection that stretches over half a century.
