Across the country, there’s a growing movement to change the name of “Columbus Day” to “Indigenous Peoples Day.”

Many say Christopher Columbus didn’t actually discover America, since indigenous people were already living here.

A rally will take place at the Columbus statue at the corner of Porter Ave. and Niagara St.

Protesters will be calling on Buffalo City Council and Mayor Byron Brown to move the statue and rename the park.
