There is a small group of people from outside Cedar City that have waged a war on the Cedar City High Redmen. They use revisionist history and feigned outrage to advance their agenda. Though their numbers are small their voices are loud, it is now time that we make our voices heard as well.

-To us Redmen stands for pride, respect, honor, bravery, and tradition.
-Polls show that only 11% of the Nation's population and only 9% of the American Indian population find the name offensive.
-We are not racists clinging to a racial epthet, we do not recognize the extreme minorty claim that Redmen is or ever was a racial slur.
-The Cedar City Redmen have historically used and continually use the name in an honorable fashion.
-Denegrating the use and origins of the term only serves to continue distorting the history of the American Indian in our modern culture.
-"It made us all so proud to have an Indian on a big-time team. It's only a small group of radicals who oppose those names. Indians are proud of Indians."-Walter Wetzel, former Chairmanof the Blackfoot tribe and president of the National Congress Of American Indians.
