Bill Will End Use of Indigenous Mascots in Public Schools

 

By Jayna Smith

Maine could soon be the first state in the nation to make it illegal for public schools to use Native American mascots.

School Administrative District 54, which includes Skowhegan, recently voted 14-9 to stop its use of the “Indian” nickname and mascot for all schools in the district.  This came after a year-long debate over the use of the name for the Skowhegan Area High School teams.
