Column header name maps to what field name

What is the field name for the Sprint Board column header? In my workflow, I have many statuses assigned to each of the Active Sprints board columns (i.e. To Do, In Progress, Done). I want to use only the column header name (i.e. To Do, In Progress, Done) rather than the status under it for a simple report. I am unable to locate the field name for the column header so that I can insert it in the issue navigator.

the column headers are not fields in Jira but rather simply titles. The fields associated with each column depends on the status mapping that you set up under board settings.
