Michigan School Board Develops New Logo Without American Indian Imagery, Yet Keeps Name Milan ‘Big Reds’

The image of a spear with a feather will no longer be featured on Milan area school logos, with a resolution calling for the elimination of all American Indian imagery from the Michigan school district by August 30, 2015.  Yet the district will retain the name “Big Reds” as well as the image of an Indian chief on the floor of the middle school gymnasium.

The Milan News-Leader, a Michigan newspaper, is reporting that as the school district begins the process of creating a new logo, students attending Milan Area Schools will retain their “Milan Big Reds” name.

The creation of the new logo will involve a committee of students, staff and alumni and will be approved by the board “no later than the board’s first regular meeting in January 2013,” the News-Leader reports.
