He is a colonizer who destroyed and damaged the Alaska Natives. He should not be revered anymore than colombus.

I'm down with making old white men move over. Every person has a right to their best life. One person, one vote.

If they have not yet, everyone residing on north american land needs to acknowledge that it was unrightfully taken from those who have been here since time immemorial. Celebrating a purchase of alaska from one white western society to another is disrespectful to indegenous peoples. This is an opportunity to "rebrand" this space in downtown Juneau with something entirely more appropriate

I want an Elizabeth P. statue there. So much more appropriate for Alaska!

Outdated. It needs to go! Let’s commemorate someone better. Elizabeth Peratrovich for example.

As an Alaskan, I support the removal of Seward's statue. We could replace it with one of Elizabeth Peratrovich or another Alaska Native leader.

This should honor the natives not the thief.
