Members of the Northern Arapaho Wind River Reservation meet with students and faculty of Strasburg High School for its yearly celebration of Arapaho Day. The relationship between Strasburg and the Northern Arapaho was born as legislation advanced to address sports mascots that others found offensive. In efforts to retain their mascot and namesake Strasburg Indians, and to honor those that might be offended, Strasburg formed a partnership with the Northern Arapaho tribe to redesign the mascot logo and introduce learning focused on the experience of Native Americans. Arapaho Day events included an incense-ritual, POW WOW, and small-group learning activities. Wednesday, May 4, 2022, Strasburg High School, 56729 East Colorado Avenue, Strasburg, CO 80136.
