Salamanca schools likely exempt from state’s Native mascots decision

The Warriors logo at the middle of Salamanca’s varsity football, lacrosse and soccer field was designed by Seneca artist Carson Waterman.

SALAMANCA — Public school districts across New York state are being urged to stop using any Native American mascots, team names or logos by the end of the school year, or risk losing state aid.

The one exception is for districts that receive approval of a Native name from a recognized tribe. In the Salamanca City Central School District, this likely won’t be a problem.
