HOUSTON -- Indigenous activists and supporters came together in Houston for an educational protest against Columbus day. The group of brave souls gathered for a walk (some wearing shackles and bound together with chains) in the refreshing rain to Bell Park in the Texas Medical center. 
A statue of Christopher Columbus erected by the Italian Culture Center as a gift to the City of Houston was symbolically draped in chains as a way of giving back the chains of oppression to the oppressor. The event was organized by the American Indian Alliance of Greater Houston with American Indian Genocide Museum providing the historical information for the banners and posters. The protesters vow to return every year at Bell Park until this holiday is abolished.
