get over yourselves!!! i'm american indian myself have been for a very long time & this generation of little indians whining & complaining of someone using something that looks & sounds like indians is not offensive. What's offensive to me is you complaining about something that has happened 200 yrs ago !!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe people are so narrow minded. I would think to have a school named after Native Americans would make them proud. I'm sure when these schools were named it was because they admired the Native Americans. Also, the school named Warriors may not despict Indians at all. It could be Vikings or any other warriors. The people should vote or even the Tribes in Oregon.

What about other people and nationalities, such as the Irish, Celtics, or even the Patriots? Is this any different? I am Native American and have nothing but respect for the schools who choose to honor the great Indian Nation by using their name as a mascot!
