Is this offensive to native americans in Connecticut

I would like to start by saying that I come to this forum for real input and knowledge. Although the question I am asking is very shallow, and probably been asked and answered many times, I genuinely would like some perspective from someone who actually is native American.

In Connecticut there have been debates in recent years about native American mascots and how they are offensive to people of the various tribes within this region. Now my high schools name is the Windsor Warriors and our symbol is Windsor Warriors with an arrowhead between the two.

Without sounding ignorant because I know that each native american tribe is different so i do not mean to sound like im saying all native americans are the same but I would like to hear from people who are actually native american. I have only heard from white people saying its offensive and i doubt they have ever spoken to any native american.

So is the warrior name offensive?

I greatly appreciate any input and apart from this shallow question i am glad i found this forum and look forward to learning more about each native american tribes rich history and also all your thoughts and perspectives on current issues.

Thank you.

Welcome to powwows.com.

The mascot issues has been discussed to death. I'm afraid you may encounter issue fatigue. I would suggest you use the search function for the forums and you will find a wealth of opinions.
