Description: On the occasion of the Columbus Day festivities being held in San Francisco's Aquatic Park on October 12, 1971, a group of Native Americans held a counter-celebration marked by ceremonies of mourning. The two events happened within earshot of each other and were recorded by KPFA's Bill Schechner. This recording documents reactions to the event by both Native and non-Native people.
