Today is either Columbus Day or Indigenous People Day--or a good day to look at the issues.  Cubberley Library has a wealth of resources whatever your interests in these issues.  Our historical textbook collection (1800+) can allow you to see how the discovery of this country has been portrayed over time, or you can simply look more specifically at the portrayal of Columbus.  Books for children and young adults such as Dreaming in Indian can help you gain a better understanding of the indigenous peoples in this country and elsewhere.  See the following guides for more resources:
