GREEN BAY, Wis. (WLUK) -- Brown County is being asked to remove a statue and painting from the courthouse. At least one Native American says they are offensive.
The courthouse is on the National Registrar for Historic Places, which could play a role if the complaint is addressed.
The "Spirit of the Northwest" statue outside the Brown County Courthouse features Father Claude Allouez, French explorer Nicolas Perrot and an unnamed Native American. It commemorates exploration into the Green Bay region in 1668.
