Idaho tribe asks state to ban all Indian school mascots

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes are asking state lawmakers to stop Idaho public schools from using Native American mascots. The Idaho Statesman obtained the tribes' position paper through a public records request. The tribes submitted the paper to the Idaho State Board of Education last month asking the board, the state Legislature and Idaho Gov. Brad Little to ban the mascots, saying their use is racial misappropriation.
