An American Indian should be given the chance to ride beside Cristobol Colon, a direct descendant of Christopher Columbus, in the grand marshal's car during next January's Rose Parade, actor James Edward Olmos said Monday. Olmos made the suggestion during a Columbus Day news conference in Hollywood to announce a yearlong "Americas Before Columbus" celebration of the accomplishments of American Indians. Tournament of Roses officials expressed doubt that the suggestion would be followed.
