Home of the PHS Indians (Pocatello High School) sign

A sign in front of Pocatello High School that reads, “Home of the PHS Indians.”

POCATELLO — The stance of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes on Pocatello High School’s use of the Indians moniker and mascot has been one of both support and opposition over the years.

But the Tribes will have an opportunity to voice what is now an opinion of sound dissent on the school’s usage of Native American imagery and nicknames during a 5:30 p.m. Pocatello-Chubbuck School District 25 Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday at the district’s main office on Pole Line Road.
