List of secondary school sports team names and mascots derived from indigenous peoples

Among the categories of names for sports teams in North America, those referring to Indigenous peoples are lesser in popularity only to the names of various animals (Eagles, Tigers, Bulldogs, Panthers, Wildcats, Lions, Cougars). In the top ten, "Warriors" is number six, and "Indians" is number eight. The typical logo is an image of a stereotypical Native American man in profile, wearing a Plains Indians headdress; some are more realistic, while others are cartoons or caricatures. Other imagery include dreamcatchers, feathers, spears, and arrows. Individual schools may have performance traditions, such as the tomahawk chop, a mascot or cheerleaders in stereotypical Native attire, and chants adapted from Hollywood movies. These fictional representations stand in the way of any authentic understanding of contemporary Indigenous peoples, and promote racism.The documents most often cited to justifying the trend for change are an advisory opinion by the United States Commission on Civil Rights in 2001 and a resolution by the American Psychological Association in 2005. Both support the views of Native American organizations and individuals that such mascots maintain harmful stereotypes that are discriminatory and cause harm by distorting the past and preventing understanding of Native American/First Nations peoples in the present.

The trend towards the elimination of indigenous names and mascots in local schools has been steady, with two-thirds having been eliminated over the past 50 years according to the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI). In a few states with significant Native American populations, change has been mandated by law, such in Wisconsin, Oregon, and Washington. A bill to ban Native American mascots statewide passed the Maine House of Representatives and Senate and was signed into law by Governor Janet Mills in May, 2019.The list below for U.S. High Schools however remains substantial, with over 400 teams currently calling themselves "Indians", over 100 "Braves", over 100 "Warriors" using indigenous imagery (there are many with the name using generic, Greek or Roman mascots), and 48 "Redskins". The latter has shown the greatest decline, due to an association with the Washington Redskins name controversy.

Sachem and Sagamore refer to paramount chiefs among the Algonquians or other Native American tribes of the northeast. The two words are anglicizations of cognate terms (c. 1622) from different Eastern Algonquian languages. The Sagamore was a lesser chief than the Sachem. Both of these chiefs are elected by their people. Sagamores are chosen by single bands to represent them, and the Sachem is chosen to represent a tribe or group of bands. Neither title is hereditary but each requires selection by band thus led.

Wesley Lyng Minor

Wesley Lyng Minor (born 1851) was an American architect from Massachusetts.

Minor was born in Franklin, Louisiana in 1851, and moved north to New Bedford with his family at the age of seven. They later moved to Marion and Middleborough. There he began studying architecture with a retired carpenter who taught at the Pierce Academy. Three years later he moved to Boston, where he worked for William R. Ware. After a few months he moved to Philadelphia, where he worked for John McArthur, Jr. A year later he went to New York City and worked for Richard Morris Hunt.In 1878 Minor established himself as an architect in Charleston, South Carolina. He also worked at Topeka, Denver, and Catlettsburg, never remaining long in any one place. Around 1880 he moved back to New Bedford. In 1882 he formed a partnership with an unidentified New York architect, and agreed to open a Newport office. Stopping in Brockton, he believed that that city offered more opportunities. His New York partner disagreed, and Minor stayed in Brockton alone. By 1889 the Brockton office was secondary, as Minor had moved his main one to Boston, though he continued to live in Brockton. He later moved to Baltimore, where he had family. Back in Boston, by 1914 he had formed a partnership with Max M. Kalman (Minor & Kalman) which lasted at least until 1916. He appears to have remained in Boston for the rest of his career.

In Brockton, he was a contemporary of Waldo V. Howard.
