Using false claims of “racism,” a long-term nationwide program to strip Indian names from athletic programs has reached Fairfield and Suisun City.
Trustees of the Fairfield-Suisun School District were told by a group of strangers on Oct. 23 that Armijo High School must end the Indian as the mascot at Armijo High School. A costly change.
The community does not agree. They recognize that the Armijo Indian is less a mascot than a symbol of pride, fighting spirit, nobility and bravery. The mascot is always presented in a respectful way.
