Tonight Montrose High will unveil the new Red Hawks logo and send off the name Indians.
Sport uniforms and branded objects featuring the soon-to-be retired Indians logos, such as window covers, cafeteria tables and the football field’s totem pole, will be on display in the Lloyd McMillan Gym for an online auction. It's one way that the district is attempting to help pay for the mascot change.
These costs increased after an April 15 meeting with the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs, where Ute Mountain Ute Chairman Manuel Heart told Superintendent Carrie Stephenson that the high school’s signature logo, featuring feathers tied in a knot at the end, has indigenous connotations and will need to be removed.
What do you think about the auction? Will you bid on anything?
