(Waterloo, IA) -- A group of alumni want to change the name of Columbus Catholic High School in Waterloo.

The group has started a petition online discussing the history of enslavement, sexual abuse, and killing of Native Americans under Christopher Columbus' exploration of the Americas.

The group has tried to get the name changed several times but has failed in its attempts to do so.

The group says that addressing the wrong doings of Christopher Columbus is not cancel culture, but a moral issue that needs to be discussed and changed.
