The Captain James Cook statue facing the inlet that bears his name and fronts Alaska’s largest city in downtown Anchorage is seen on June 23, 2020.

The effort has already resulted in a statue of Russian America colonialist Alexander Baranov being taken out of public view in one city. Others want statutes removed of U.S. Secretary of State and Alaska purchase architect William Seward and Capt. James Cook. (AP Photo/Mark Thiessen)
