Are Native American Mascots Disappearing?


Emmanuella Njunge, Reporter

What do people think of Adidas funding schools with Native American mascots to change their logo? Some think that it’s good, and some think it’s unfair to change the mascots that the school has had for years. About 2,000 schools nation-wide have Native American mascots.

On the one hand, changing them is taking years of tradition from the school. I, for one, think that it is a good idea because Native Americans are offended by the mascots because they think that it is disrespectful.  President Barack Obama applauded Adidas for being so generous to help the schools.
