Pocatello High School has always been the Indians and their mascot has always worn a headress.

But, we are in need of serious change because Native Americans and their culture have been disregarded for decades.

Though it is not so obvious, this is a form of racism that may hurt the people around us.

Pocatello is not the only one with a contreversial history of disrespecting Native Americans.

For example, the Washington Redskins have dropped their name, logo, and merchandise this year.m

This is a great sign of change that has needed to happen for far too long.

We can make a difference by standing up for what is right.
