Tennessee Anti-Discriminatory Mascots Act
2011 List of Tennessee Elementary & Secondary Schools
with Native American mascots or possible references to NA mascots.

This list was compiled from www.hsfootballweb.com/tenn.htm and www.aistm.org/tennessee.htm as well as the Tennessee Department of Education Directory at www.k-12.state.tn.us/sde/CreateSchoolList.asp and is not exhaustive.

Some schools have team names that may be taken for Indian imagery but do not use Native American Indian mascots. These are included in the appendix (eg, White County Warriors use a Spartan warrior as its mascot).

No college or university in Tennessee currently uses a Native American Indian mascot. In 1996 the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga discontinued use of its mascot, Chief Moccanooga, as "inappropriate in an institution that values and celebrates diversity"; and in 2002 Martin Methodist College in Pulaski changed its sports team nickname from "Indians" to "Redhawks" in reaction to the United Methodist Church's own opposition to such practices.
