Of course they did. The don’t want to have their predominately white student body be associated with Indians, right? I say that tongue-in-cheek, but it can’t be far off when a white, liberal school superintendent and school board decide to reject any association with an entire race of people. This was rigged from the beginning with a very thin veneer of giving a crap about the public. So much for self-governance in Menomonee Falls.
MENOMONEE FALLS — The battle over the use of the “Indians” nickname in the Menomonee Falls School District is over. After weeks of discussion, the Menomonee Falls School Board voted 5-2 on Monday night, Dec. 9 to retire the “Indians” nickname.
In a previous meeting, the superintendent of Menomonee Falls School District recommended the nickname be retired at the end of the school year.
