The conflict in this story is between cultures, both literally and symbolically. Literally, it is between the people from Earth and those from Mars. Symbolically, it is between conquerors and natives, such as Europeans and Native Americans.  How it is resolved depends on where it is in the story and sequence. By that I mean, at first the Earth humans win, renaming things, but then Mars changes them into Martians, and the names change with them.
