Is Using Indian Names and Likenesses An Insult or Pride? [POLL]
There is growing pressure in the country to force sports teams to stop using the names “Indians” or “Warriors” or using any likeness to “Native Americans”. What are your thoughts on this issue?Many schools and teams have been forced to stop using the Indian, and now a Congresswoman is trying to pass a law forcing the Redskins to change their name. Shouldn’t they be worring about more important things like the budget and the running of the country?
Should Grand Junction Central change their mascot? Do the Montrose High School students disrespect the image and name of an Indian? Or is the use of the name “Indian” really a source of pride, respect and admiration for the spirit the they had in our history?
