Wyoming board takes step toward renaming peak in Yellowstone NP

One of the highest peaks in Yellowstone National Park may be renamed from Mount Doane to the First Peoples Mountain over claims Gustavus Cheyney Doane—after who the mountain is named—was a "horrible man who actively engaged in violence towards Native People."

The Wyoming Board of Geographic Names voted six to two in favor of the name change in a meeting held at the end of May.
