Spokane avoids the Chief Wahoo image

The Spokane Indians of the Northwest League (short season A level) announced a new logo and uniforms that was developed in conjunction with the Spokane Indian Tribe.

The Spokane Tribal Council released the following statement about the Spokane Indians logo and the process of creating the new identity:

"Immediately upon contact from the Spokane Indians Baseball Management team, the Spokane Tribe believed the request to offer input with the team's new look would prove to be a win-win situation for all involved. The Spokane Tribal Council along with input from its Culture Committee, and community Elders wanted to use this opportunity to build a long lasting successful working relationship with the baseball team carrying the Spokane Tribe's name."

"The Spokane Tribal Council believes the Spokane Indians Baseball Management team is taking a lead role in respecting the Tribe's native culture and people by collaborating in the design of their new logo. The Spokane Tribe and Culture Committee hope other Indian-named organizations across the country keep this ground breaking concept in mind with their own neighboring Indian Tribes."


There are no plans for the team to have an Indian-themed mascot. The team's current mascot, the beloved OTTO the Spokanasauraus, one of the region's most popular and well-known mascots, will continue to represent the Indians in the community and entertain fans at Avista Stadium.

Who can compete with Otto the Spokanasauraus?

Isn't it Chief Wahoo?

OT: The assistant GM of my local minor league team the Daytona Cubs just left to join the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. When I read it in the paper I was like, 'I know the IronPigs!' because of your fine work at The Griddle. I feel I'm ahead of the curve because of you.

Thanks for the correction. I'd been online a bit too long and had Yahoo on the brain.

Glad to be of service with the IronPigs.
