VICTORY: Washington Board of Education Moves Against Native American Mascots

school1

In Washington state, there are roughly twenty high schools with Native American mascots. Matt Remle, who runs a web-based group called Indigenous Action, circulated a MoveOn Petition to formally ask the Washington State Board of Education to end the use of Native American mascots in public schools. His petition, along with the resolution, was presented to the WSBE in May. On September 6, the WSBE voted unanimously to pass the resolution to end the use of Native American mascots in Washington State’s public schools. In addition, the resolution calls on districts to close the widening gap between Native American and other students.
