In recent years, some public parks and other gathering spaces have been renamed because of bad acts by those whose name is on them. Col. Henry Sibley, for whom Mankato’s Sibley Park is named, is cited for his role in the U.S.-Dakota War in 1862. What criteria should be used if the name is changed, and what are some possible selections? Who should make the decision?
