San Francisco Removes Statue Of Native Man At Feet Of Colonizers

An empty pedestal remains where a statue known as Early Days, which depicted a Native American at the feet of a Catholic missionary and Spanish cowboy, used to stand on Fulton Street in San Francisco. The statue was removed early Friday morning.

The statue, called Early Days, showed a Native American gazing up at a vaquero, or Spanish cowboy, and a proselytizing priest. Native groups have long called for the sculpture’s removal.
