New Hampshire High School Wants To Bring Indian Logo Back

The woke mob is focused on eliminating any Indian insignia or logos. One high school in New Hampshire has resisted the trend and is trying to include Indian elements in their logo.

After the 2020 virtue-signaling craze, Winnacunnet High School Warriors removed the Indian imagery from their logo in Hampton, NH, a group of concerned citizens has petitioned the Warriors to reinstate it.

Some have raised the absurd argument that Indian influence on a team logo design is racism and cultural appropriation. There are so many things wrong with that sentence that it’s hard to know where to start refuting it, so let’s look at why the citizens of New Hampshire’s seacoast want the logo to return to the pre-2020 design.

Winnacunnet School Board Chairman Henry Marsh will be leading the charge as a private citizen, saying he is doing it to preserve “the town’s history.”

He is talking about the history of the Pennacook and Abenaki tribes who lived where today’s high school is located. Furthermore, the word “Winnacunnet” means “beautiful place of the pines” in indigenous tongues.

WHS freshman DJ Sciacca, a student-athlete at the school, started a petition asking for the insignia’s return.

… is a reflection of our town’s history and honors the town’s Indigenous people … they reflected courage, teamwork and resolve’ in facing threats including ‘invading colonists, looking to take their land, dismantle their communities and forcibly change their spiritual beliefs.

This does not sound racist towards Indians. Rather, it sounds like they are honoring a people group who displayed admirable qualities that their sports teams look to emulate.

Sports teams often do this. For example, Pittsburgh’s NFL team calls themselves the Steelers due to the booming steel industry in the city, and Philadelphia’s NBA team calls themselves the 76ers because the Declaration of Independence was signed in that city in the year 1776. Likewise, Winnacunnet’s choice of mascot and logo is nothing more than honoring that past.

Here’s to hoping the citizens of the seacoast are able to courageously and resolutely stand against the inevitable pushback they will receive from left-leaning crybabies who have nothing better to do with their time than invent problems where they do not exist.
