"Maine's Governor has signed a bill making the state the first to prohibit public school, colleges and universities from using Native American symbols as mascots"

a much longer shot but wouldn't mind Washington to follow.

The team originated as the Boston Braves, based in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1932, under the ownership of George Preston Marshall.[8] At the time the team played in Braves Field, home of the Boston Braves baseball team in the National League. The following year, the club moved to Fenway Park, home of the American League's Boston Red Sox, whereupon owners changed the team's name to "Boston Redskins." To round out the change, Marshall hired William "Lone Star" Dietz, who was thought to be part Sioux, as the team's head coach.[9] However, Boston wasn't much of a football town at the time and the team had difficulty drawing fans.
The Redskins relocated south from New England after five years to the national capital of Washington, D.C...

Sad... My daughter goes to Central Michigan Univ. The Chippewas.. named after a local tribe. The tribe is very involved with the university, they hold events throughout the school year. The kids are educated about appropriate and inappropriate face painting, and hand gestures. Its a great relationship and gets more people to learn about the first residents of those lands.

This. My schools mascot was named after the local Seneca tribe. Very much the same way, involved and it the name was to honor them. They even had the medicine man paint the basketball court logo to make sure the headdress was correct. Few years later NCAA cracked down on the names.

This.

BTW, I travel to Mount Pleasant at least 2-3 times per year for one of my clients. I really enjoy Central Michigan University. Also, I love the "new" hotel that overlooks the football field.

Its a Maine business.
from the article:
"While Indian mascots were often originally chosen to recognize and honor a school's unique connection to Native American communities in Maine, we have heard clearly and unequivocally from Maine tribes that they are a source of pain and anguish,"

"Ambassador Maulian Dana of the Penobscot Nation said she has been fighting to change Native American mascots since she was a teenager."

Then if it's a State issue, which it is. Why make a sweeping ignorant statement at the top?

apparently there were discussions to change it. Not just the gun. This Mascot thing is a whole world by itself.

why not reading the damn article first? but I get your point/

what do you think about the Redskins, a pro sport franchise. There were talk on that for quite sometime. I say it boils down to money. Same way that public schools rely on funding from the state.

At this juncture I don't see the Redskins changing their moniker. And I really really don't care about it. I don't get mad at SDSU having the Aztecs as a mascot...even though there were no Aztecs in Southern California...

Nicely played.


The Fighting Whites were an intramural basketball team formed at the University of Northern Colorado in 2002 and named in response to the Native American mascot controversy.
