It's not okay that they broke us into "tribes" at ALJH and took the names of actual tribes and couldn't even do the most basic level of education about the tribes whose names they used or native issues in general. But I suppose if they'd done that basic level of education, they'd have realized themselves already how gross it is using an actual living culture as a mascot

Class of 1984 - my school is not defined by it’s name. Change is good for the right reasons. This is the right decision.

Native peoples and titles are not to be used as mascots. It is disrespectful and dehumanizing.

Enough is enough. It's not ok to do this to any other race of people, and it's not ok to continue to do this to the people you stole this land from. We are not your mascot.

Indigenous people are not mascots. They’re not for the entertainment of white people/dominant culture. Perpetuating these stereotypes is harmful to people with serious psychological, cultural, and social consequences. We need to advocate and protect the civil rights and racial equity of indigenous people or we’ll all suffer.
