After attending last night's MAPS Board meeting I left feeling sad and depressed after seeing the concerted and pointed effort by those wanting to get rid of the Redmen nickname.

It appeared most in opposition were NMU faculty and students in the Native American studies who never attended MAPS as students or know the culture of MSHS.

Whenever the term Redmen was used it was termed racist by this faction.

About 60 people addressed the Board Monday night. Those in favor of retaining the Redmen name brought up several interesting points:

1. There are about five (unnamed) teachers  at MSHS who are calling students who are in favor of retaining the Redmen name, racists, according to their parents who spoke.

2. No reason has been given to the public as to why all team and individual sports records listed on the gym walls have been removed and destroyed.

3. Those in opposition dismiss anyone who says Redmen stands for courage, strenght and power,

Those for change suggested the name be changed to the Marquette Mariners to provide a good gender neutral name and depict the area from where the school is from while halting the current recist name.

That's what is going on in Marquette. I can't wait until this group goes after the teams in Ishpeming and Negaunee for their nicknames.

I ALSO FEEL SAD. THAT EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD TODAY HAS TO HAVE AN UNDER TONE OF RACIST. IF THEY CHANGE THE NAME TO MAINERS WILL SOMEONE WANT THAT CHANGED TO SOMTHING ELSE BECAUSE MAYBE THE MAINERS DURING THE OLD TIMES POLLUTED LAKE SUPERIOR. I THINK IF WE HAVE ANY LAWERS IN OUR CLASS OR THE CLASSES BEFORE AND AFTER SHOULD DO A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST  THE PARTIES INVOLVED IN REMOVAL OF OUR SPORT HERITAGE. WHO RUNS THAT MEETING YOU WERE AT. I NEAVER HEARD OF THAT GROUP.

Susan Krueger (Hagman)

I'm also sorry to hear about the Redmen controversy.  I'm so sick of people playing the racist card.  I think being a mascot for a team should be an honor.  I'm surprised that this didn't take place sooner.

I haven't given this response much thought but I wonder what will happen to my diploma. Are my accomplishments in High School going to be erased to because I was a Redman?

  I,m not at all happy with the cowards buckling under to a buch of candy assed whiny dip sh#ts! The Marquette Redmen stand for bravery, perseverance, pride, honesty and integrity.

  I have a cap made to show MY pride in the fact that "We are REDMEN from MSHS 1965"!!!!

 I will post a picture of it and me when I pick it up tomorrow.

 Just to make it clear it was the first regular meeting of the Marquette Area Public Schools Board of Education for 2020 where this took place. The school board had appointed a committee to review the Redmen nickname and had unanimously voted to accept the committee's recomendation to change the name at a previous meeting. Due to the outpouring of comments by the people of Marquette the meeting was held in Kaufman auditorium to hold everyone. The board meeting before at the little theater in the high school had such an over flow that this last meeting was moved to Kaufman. The Mining Journal last night had an editorial that everyone involved in the discussion should remain civil.

   Sorry all....I,ve tried multiple times and my pc refuses to "cooperate" with me. Can't seem to get my hat pic on screen.

Karen Wright (Lancaster)

I'm in the same fix.  I have a t-shirt from the all school/all year reunion that they were selling with the redman head on the front and the UP with all the tribes and on the back is 'Our proud Culture and Heritage!  WE WILL NOT GIVE UP!'. Got it to my Facebook page but can't get it further.  LOL

Is this the picture you were trying to get to the message board?  I pulled it from your profile.  Let me know if you want me to delete it.

I have the pics of the t-shirt I got at the all school/all year reunion many years ago!  I have it in my profile but not able to move it here.  Oops.

Karen Wright's shirt

  Thanks, Pat. That is the picture. The Indian head is from Marquette embroidery. They refused to put any lettering on it. I went to Embroidery Wearhouse and they put the lettering on for me. The front has MSHS 1965 and the sides  have Redmen. I have been wearing that hat all over and will continue to wear it proudly!

Bob - want my t-shirt to go with it?  laugh

  If I wore "t" shirts I would accept, Karen, but, thanks for the offer. I don't think i've worn a "t" shirt since high school. lol

  As a matter of fact I don't even wear long sleeve shirts anymore.

 If anyone wants a hat I'll find out the cost and let you know. Just send me an E-mail: rblam516@charter.net

 Since I got my new tractor  if I want to use it I have to get out while my son is working. Nice not having to shovel or get out in a storm to clean up the driveways on the block. lol
