. Hundreds Sign Petition Against Roosevelt Statue Relocation to Tribal Lands « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NATIVE NEWS ONLINE – More than 200 academics, artists and allies have signed onto a petition to stop New York City’s infamous Theodore Roosevelt statue from being relocated from a storage facility to the ancestral homeland of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara (MHA) people in North Dakota. The city removed the statue from the entrance of the American Museum of Natural History in the middle of the night last month, more than a year after then-Mayor Bill de Blasio backed protestor’s rallying cries, stating that the “problematic” statue “explicitly depicts Black and Indigenous people as subjugated and racially inferior.”
