Statement from Department meeting November 15, 2013:
Be it resolved that the Department of Educational Foundations, College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan does not support the use of Indigenous people depicted as school mascots, in logos, slogans or team names in K-12, post-secondary and community educational institutions.
As a department focused on pedagogy, research and community engagement relating to Indigenous peoples, social and ecological justice, we unanimously support and recommend the immediate retirement of such caricatures.
