Natick Redmen Forever. R E D M E N. Thank you School Committee for holding this hearing. Benefit of a year’s worth of new information, facts, figures, and the referendum vote from March 25 th 2008. Overturn the March 2007 decision to eliminate the Redmen name.
R E D M E N
Natick “Redmen” is the antipathy of all these negative terms.
We, the Natick School Committee, after having carefully considered and weighed the concerns and importance of the matter, do hereby proclaim to restore the name “Redmen” to sports teams associated with the Natick school system, and in doing so, do hereby definethe word “Redmen” within this context as meaning a respectful reference to the Native American history of Natick and the related attributes we seek to instill in all our student athletes such as pride, honor, dignity, strength, and greatness.
The Redmen name has remained constant in Natick for half a century.
But the logo has taken many forms.
Current logo may not accurately represent Natick’s founding Native Americans.
A contest to allow students or residents at large to create a more appropriate Native American logo.
It’s time to heal Natick and unite the community once again.
