West Hartford has the Warriors. Across town are the Chieftains. Also in town is – the Indians.
Native American names and symbols are not only associated with the high schools. There are many roads throughout town which bear Native American names.
The Hartford Courant is reporting that a debate is brewing at Hall about changing the warrior mascot. Members of the school's Action Club have deemed the current warrior logo a "stereotypical Native American at war," and find it "offensive."
In defense of the warrior, another group of students has formed "The pREZervation," in an attempt to maintain the "cultural tradition" they believe the mascot represents at Hall.
According to the Courant, Hall Principal Donald Slater will not make any decision until "all voices are heard."
It's a controversial issue, and a debate which has been waged in communities all over the country.
