Some schools cling onto Indian imagery, mascots

Hundreds of schools across the nation have gotten rid of their Indian nicknames, symbols and mascots but some refuse to budge.

Like the "Redmen" of Tewksbury, Massachusetts. The school's mascot is portrayed by a student in a headdress and face paint.

Other schools have gotten rid of some Indian imagery but keep their nicknames. The "Warriors" of Lincoln-Sudbury, Massachusetts, phased out its mascot and headdress logo.
