From right, Haskell Indian Nations University junior Shereena Baker, Fortuna, Calif., of the Southern Ute and Karuk tribes; senior Margaret Stevens, Oneida, Wisconsin, of the Oneida tribe; and senior Willow Bonga, Portland, Ore., of the Quinault tribe, are among members of Haskell's American Indian Studies Club who have asked Lawrence city commissioners to change the name of Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. The students, pictured Wednesday at Haskell, are planning a noon march on Monday from the South Park gazebo to the Haskell campus to bring attention to the issue.
