Florida State Mascot Upsets Native
Americans In Oklahoma
Condensed by Native Village
But some Oklahomans, especially Native Americans, were too disgusted to watch. They are offended by Florida State's mascot, Chief Osceola.
"Why would I want to watch something
as racist as that?" Narcomey asked.
But the Seminole Tribe of Florida
doesn't see it that way. The Tribe
endorses FSU's Indian
Chief and works with the University
on its image. The chief of the
Seminole Tribe of Florida considers
it an honor.
In 2001, the Five Civilized Tribes in Oklahoma passed a resolution that they are against Indian mascots in general. But the Oklahoma Seminole Nation has not taken an official stance one way or another on Osceola.
