"Indian" mascot from    Amite High School

There are approximately 65 "Indian" sports team tokens used by educational institutions throughout the State of Louisiana.   These institutionalized racial icons range from the simplistic "Indian" misnomer to the patently offensive "Redskins."

In the summer of 1999, organized efforts aimed at addressing the use of "Indian" sports team tokens in Louisiana were begun.   These pages are designed to assist educators, parents, and concerned others who would like to participate in this endeavor.
