Castlewood School District ditches Native American logo


CASTLEWOOD, S.D. (AP) — Another school district in South Dakota has decided to stop displaying Native American imagery in its school logo.

The Castlewood School Board honored voters' informal request to adopt a Spartan head as its new school logo Monday, the Watertown Public Opinion ( ) reported. The decision comes after four months of discussion that included substantial public input.

Castlewood began phasing out its logo of a chief wearing a headdress 15 years ago after activist Betty Ann Gross threatened a lawsuit. Superintendent Keith Fodness said the district decided to stop printing new Native American imagery after discussions with Gross.
