A group of Huron High School alumni is asking the Huron School District to stop using Native American imagery as its mascot, according to a Detroit Free Press report published Monday.
The report by the Free Press says the former students wrote a letter to Superintendent Donovan Rowe recently asking that the district “denounce the use of Native American stereotypes and imagery in all Huron School District capacities,” according to the Free Press report.
Rowe acknowledged the group and responded with a statement.
Some of the alumni organizing the cause gathered in front of the high school last Friday wearing face masks in photos published by the Free Press.
The organizers said they planned to attend Monday’s school board meeting.
