This year, October 9 marks the International Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity in Argentina, which honors the diversity of Europeans and native Americans. It is observed co-located with Columbus Day in various regions across the globe. Presently, the festival is referred to as the Day of Cultural Diversity Respect in Argentina. Although it is widely observed on the second Monday of October, certain countries, including Venezuela and Chile, observed it on October 12th, while Colombia observed it on October 17th, despite the fact that the dates correspond to the same festival. The alteration in nomenclature and deviation from the initial timeframe might be indicative of the negative perception that some indigenous populations hold towards Columbus and the Europeans.

The background of International: Day of respect for cultural diversity

Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity is a relatively recent designation in Argentina; the event was formerly referred to as Da de la Raza, which translates to Day of the Races. Regarding Christopher Columbus and his Hispanic crew, it continues to be referred to as Da de la Raza in a number of South American nations. Da de la Raza, which initially aimed to commemorate the significance of the Hispanic influence on the Americas, has since transformed into a countercelebration for the multifarious cultures comprising contemporary South America, including indigenous peoples and those of Hispanic ancestry. This is consistent with the fact that Columbus introduced both positive and negative influences.

The term ‘La Raza’ is believed to have been coined by the President of the Ibero-American Union, Spanish minister Faustino Rodrguez-San Pedro, who sponsored the inaugural event in 1914 known as the Feast of the Race. According to José Vasconcelos, a Mexican author, in his 1925 book “La Raza Cósmica,” a perpetual blending of races has commenced in the Latin arena and will eventually give rise to a new race.

Numerous individuals consider this ideology to be an affront to indigenous culture on the grounds that it forces them to acknowledge their Hispanic heritage. As a consequence of the controversies encompassing the expression ‘La Raza,’ specific countries, including Venezuela, have coined the phrase ‘Da de la Resistencia Indigena’ to underscore the indigenous population’s resistance to the imposition of European culture.

We honor the diversity of cultural expressions that has developed over time, fostering interaction, integration, and development among all individuals. Recognizing and valuing the variety of customs, affiliations, and personas that constitute our society enhances our collective well-being and works against division and bias in order to foster greater intercultural comprehension and cooperation. Parades and festivities are held in Argentina to honor the incalculable impact that Hispanics have had on the Americas.
