Report Calls For Removing Paintings From Governor's Office

 


ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — A new state report is recommending that two historic State Capitol paintings be removed from the governor’s office.

The controversial paintings depict Native Americans in ways the report says are historically inaccurate and insensitive.

The century-old paintings in the governor’s reception room include images of Civil War battles and partially clothed Native Americans in historically inaccurate settings.
