Mike Violette on The Battle in Wells over Native American Imagery (which began with a complaint from a woman in Lisbon)

About This Project

Jim Bleikamp here.

It all began with Amelia Tuplin in Lisbon, a woman with heritage in the Micmac tribe and a son on the Lisbon Greyhound football team. She complained last fall about football game between the Wells Warriors and the Greyhounds in Wells, where she says fans were mocking Native American culture.

Now the Wells School Board has come-up with a middle-ground remedy.  If you missed our conversation about it on the Thursday WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz, here it is.

By the way, it’s mostly Mike. With just a little bit of me–so as not to be overly annoying.
