Those who suffered at the hands of police deserve a monument thoughtfully designed, sited and uniquely their own. But it was Indigenous people who were victimized by Columbus.
Let the centuries-old Herring Run obelisk recognize these victims. Let visitors question why the monument was renamed. Let them learn the history of these native people, who, as The Sun article states, were “violently enslaved” by Christopher Columbus. Let them learn about this side of Columbus, so often depicted as a hero who discovered America.
