South Bend school’s Indian mascot topic of talks

South Bend, Indiana (AP)

A Native American historian who objects to the Indian mascot nickname used by St. Joseph’s High School will meet with Catholic diocese administrators to air his concerns, a diocese spokesman said.

The diocese’s school superintendent, the principal of the school in South Bend and historian Brian Collier met Sept. 10. The South Bend Tribune reported that the meeting will be “private and preliminary,” according to Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend spokesman Vince LaBarbera.

Collier, who has two children attending Catholic school, said he didn’t think the Indian nickname and mascot was appropriate for the 800-student high school.
