H.S. Team Draws Social Media Fire for Tribal Family Poster


Shortly after KCCI-TV Sports Director Andy Garman in Des Moines, Iowa posted a Clarke HS girls' basketball team poster of seven teammates in various Native themed apparel, including headdresses, feathers and face paints, the Twitterverse and the rest of the social media universe roared in disapproval.

As Garman wrote in his post on Facebook: “I'm kind of amazed that this made it from the "idea" stage all the way to actually being printed. I predict that this will not have the reaction that they were hoping for.”

Since being posted yesterday, the image has been shared thousands of times and has nearly 800 comments on Facebook.
