November 14, 2018

Occurring on the heels of Los Angeles’ inaugural Indigenous People’s Day in October, a statue depicting Christopher Columbus — that has been sitting at Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles for 45 years — was permanently removed on Saturday, November 10.

Roughly 100 people gathered for the ceremony that began with the acknowledgement of the Gabrielino-Tongva tribe of Southern California, a song to honor the ancestors and a blessing.
