    My school used to have a Chief as it’s mascot, and while I understand that it can be offensive, I think that ik some cases it can actually be paying respect to the history if the area. I don’t know if I would be offended by being a mascot, but I have to believe I wouldn’t really care. However, I completely understand where they are coming from and agree that permission should be asked before using them as mascots.
