We are all very grateful that Indian Community School has led the effort to rename Columbus Park to Indigenous Peoples Park (7301 W. Courtland Ave). The dedication ceremony is Monday, Oct. 14, 2019, 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM. The park is located between N. 72nd St. and N. 74th St. (4600 block), and between W. Courtland Ave. and W. Glendale Ave., a few blocks north of Congress St. Columbus is not a hero to many white Americans, either. When whites look at the history of the conquest and settlement of all the Americas, honesty has to be part of redemption. I hope you can join us this coming Monday for the dedication of this newly named park.
