Tecumseh?

Is the Tecumseh statue on the Naval Academy campus next? (Ignore for a second that it is really not a statue of Tecumseh, but actually another lesser known American Indian…but I digress.)  

The Midshipmen know the statue as Tecumseh, and revere his fighting spirit, even though Tecumseh tried to form an Indian confederation East of the Mississippi — and fought both the Settlers and joined the British to fight the government of the United States in the War of 1812. Of course the Indians held as captive slaves the Irish, the Settlers, and Blacks. 

There are statues to American Indian warriors, nationwide. What are we to do?
