1997 Port Jervis Yearbook

     Almost identical to the cover used on the 1994 Port Jervis yearbook, this "Side-profile, 'Indian Chief' with 'Plains-style' headdress" has been slightly altered so that the image's nose is not so grossly "hooked."  This modification and other front cover yearbook "Indian" images are probably the handiwork of  the district's art teachers and designed to present "noble 'Indian'" images.
     Note that in all cases, the ethnically motivated icons are that of a male which makes them sexist as well as racist.
