I graduated from Pocatello High School in 1955. I was proud to be an Indian and I do not consider myself as racist. The word Indian represents courage, resilience and strength.

I am sorry that some feel as they do, they should be proud to have the honor that the PHS mascot stands for. There are not many of the class of 55 left, but all felt strong and proud to be a Pocatello Indian. It saddens me a good thing must be put aside because people do not understand.
