In 2016 a statue was raised in Juneau of William H. Seward, who was a colonizer who contributed to the disenfranchisement of Alaska Native peoples.

"But such a monument cannot be detached from the imperial ambitions that drove the United States to dispossess indigenous peoples of their land and exclude them from the political institutions of the state." A Statue of Seward in Juneau

In this current climate, where other monuments depicting racists and representatives of slavery are being taken down across the country, Juneau should honor our Indigenous hosts whose land we stand upon and remove William H. Seward from the capital courtyard.
