    Of all the indian heritage around here, there should be a good Chief name to use. Masculine of course :)

    As much as I love calling our mascot Sacagawea, (Ashton has done a great job this year), I think that it should have a more masculine name since it is a Chief! Geronimo comes to mind! He was a fierce warrior just like our Chiefs!!!!!

    I don’t know if it’s an “official ” name or not, but I’ve heard a lot of people call the mascot Sacagawea for a while now. & people will probably just keep calling it that even if it changes.
