Custer Park Being Renamed

(Portland, OR)  --  Custer Park in Portland's Multnomah neighborhood is no longer named Custer Park.  City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, who oversees the Parks Department, says the name glorifies a military oppressor instead of honoring the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Aparaho warriors who defended their homelands in what is now Montana.  The park is temporarily being renamed "A Park."  Over the next year, the Parks Department will work with neighbors, community stakeholders, historians and Indigenous Peoples to choose an appropriate name.
