Please tell me the CBE has asked the Tsuu T'ina Nation what their views are concerning the Western Canada High School Redmen name.
I think they were asked several years ago and they had no concerns. What is their perspective on this issue now? I don't see it as being derogatory.
We honour our history with names such as Deerfoot, Blackfoot, Peigan and Crowchild trails, Calf Robe Bridge, and others. We don't have to follow what Washington, Atlanta, Cleveland or Chicago do. We're not American.
We need to hear what our First Nations people think.
