Seneca, Salamanca school officials open to discuss Warriors name, logo

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

SALAMANCA — Officials at both the Seneca Nation and Salamanca school district are willing to discuss the future of the Warriors logo and name following the New York State Education Department directive to stop using Native American iconography in public schools.

Nation President Rickey Armstrong, Sr. said the decision handed down by the state Education Department is a positive step whose time has long since come.
