Change the mascot of Wentzville Holt High School

This petition had 1,203 supporters

Hello, my name is Simon Osler. I am a senior at Wentzville Holt High School in Wentzville, Missouri. For years, the mascot of Holt High School has been an "Indian", which is an outdated and offensive caricature aimed towards Native Americans. A high school that attempts to champion itself as diverse and inclusive should not still be using a term and image that stereotypes an entire marginalized group of people as a source of school spirit.

With this petition, I hope to show the administrators of the Wentzville School District and Holt High School that the community frowns upon the usage of such a degrading word and image as a mascot. I hope that this petition starts conversations in the Wentzville School District about changing the mascot of Holt High School. Thank you.
