StateImpact Oklahoma Report
Oklahoma School for the Deaf welcomes new, more inclusive Bison mascot

StateImpact Oklahoma Report

Host: Earlier this month Oklahoma School for the Deaf unveiled a fresh logo featuring their new Bison mascot. StateImpact's Robby Korth reports the Bison name flips a new page in the storied history of Oklahoma's school for deaf students. NEWSPAPER CLIPPING PAGE FLIP RK: John Reinenger is thumbing through a book of old newspaper clippings. The pages are from his days as a student at Oklahoma School for the Deaf here in Sulphur, a school that competed under the name Indians in his time. He's speaking here through an interpreter. REINENGER (through interpreter): It brings back a lot of memories. Definitely nostalgic. So yeah. I feel very, very closely connected to OSD. It's like my second home, really. (11) RK: The Midwest City man has a son here. His parents met here. He is a 2000 graduate. But there was one thing his mother Sylvia told him not to do at school. REINENGER: My mother told me never to dress like in costume as an Indian, like any kind of Indian costumes. (06) RK: John and his mother are both citizens of the Muscogee Nation. And people did dress up in costume regularly at football games and pep rallies.  REINENGER: I mean, I didn't honestly really think much about it. And then as life went on and I've gotten older, then I've looked at it and realized, Ooh. [air sucking grimace] Yikes. OK. (08) RK: There's been a community-wide realization here as well. The Indians mascot was officially retired this year and replaced with the Bison. Superintendent Chris Dvorak. DVORAK: It really kind of came to a head where there were some serious conversations within the administration that had links to alumni. And we just got the sense that the time is now, you know, we can we really need to have a serious conversation. The writing is on the wall. (18) RK: So he tasked OSD alum and director of student life Trudy Mitchell with creating a task force and leading the charge toward a new mascot. She spoke to StateImpact through an interpreter. MITCHELL: The change is needed. I'm excited that it's going to be something new, it's going to be a new vision for our school. (08) RK: Mitchell met and spoke with dozens of alumni about the potential for change. It wasn't well received at first, but she says, after several discussions many in the community have come around to the idea.  MITCHELL: Oh we had lots of options. We had painted horse, a T. Rex, a Tasmanian Devil. There was an eagle.  RK: But more than two-thirds ended up voting for Bison. Oklahoma School for the Deaf was hardly alone in its use of an Indigenous-themed mascot in Oklahoma. A StateImpact review of school nicknames found at least 75 public school districts - almost 15 percent - use Indigenous themed mascots. Corey Bunch, Education Services executive director for Cherokee Nation, says that can be hurtful. BUNCH: The chants from opposing teams and the slogans that kind of are associated with the mascots and the imagery they can quickly get carried away. And they just don't represent Native people.  (14) RK: The movement to change offensive names is gaining momentum in western states. Laws in Washington and Colorado passed this year are compelling schools to stop using Indigenous-themed mascots. Such a bill has not even been introduced in Oklahoma - the state with the highest proportion of Native Americans in the lower 48.  BUNCH: Certainly, Cherokee Nation nor other tribal nations are out twisting anybody's arm, telling them that they ought to change their mascots. But when we are asked we are certainly happy to participate. (13) RK: Individual districts are considering changes. Tulsa Union recently announced it would change its nickname. Tulsa Public Schools is looking at changing mascots at some sites as well. Bunch served as an advisory member for the review boards at both districts. And he says he always wants to advocate for Native students. BUNCH: We don't want them to be ashamed for any reason to just be the people that...

For the estimated 1 billion people with disabilities worldwide, being notified of a fire and getting out of a building in an emergency often requires much more preplanning.   Mark Larson, a former Idaho state fire marshal who has become an advocate and consultant for the National Disability Rights Network, explains common misconceptions about the disability community, why it is important for safety agencies to plan with rather than for people with disabilities, and how the fire service and disability community can better work together (1:05).

In this episode of Last Night at School Committee, Jill and Ross recap the highlights of last night's Boston School Committee meeting. The meeting began with the Superintendent's report, in which she promised an update on exam school simulations at the next meeting. She also discussed the ongoing transportation issues and painted a rosy picture of the timeliness of buses, in spite of the fact that hundreds of students are still unable to get to school, hundreds more are not arriving on time, and families are still facing troubling uncertainty. Following a short public comment period, the School Committee heard two reports on an update to the Code of Conduct and library services, and the Committee took a vote on ESSER funding that has already largely been allocated. Even as school has started and students will begin their third week on Monday, we are still left with the following questions: What is the plan for ensuring students receive healthy food rather than plastic wrapped, processed food? How will BPS continue to address transportation issues? How will they ensure this issue will not continue? How many staff have been vaccinated and / or signed on for weekly testing? We heard many testify during public comment about the Mission Hill School. What is the plan and strategy for MHS and supporting their school community? What is the plan for the Horace Mann School for the Deaf? What is the plan for a long term strategy for the EMK?  Is it now too late to take any action on the new exam school admission policy? How will we measure the impact of the ESSR funding to help inform round 3 of ESSR funding. Especially considering a plan must be submitted by October 4th? The School Committee will meet again on October 6th tentatively at 6pm. Ways to Engage and Resources: Vote for a new Mayor in September and November. Education should be a core issue for all elected officials and your vote matters.  As the Supt team said on the news last night and this morning, if you know of 25k of space for EMK please let them know. If you have issues with busses, school food, water, safety, or other basic human needs, email Sam Dipina.

Antoni is based in Barcelona. He grew up Lleida, Spain partly under Franco's totalitarian regime. The harsh political conditions didn't deter Antoni's parents, who chose to live lives dedicated to artistic endeavour. Antoni also realized at a young age that he wished to pursue his artistic curiosity and once he left his home town he began to explore his sculpting craft along with exploring the world outside of Lleida. In the early 90s, he left for Banff, Canada for a brief stint. He arrived with measuring tape and materials and left with something called an email address. From that point on, Antoni's journey took the path of a digital artistic pioneer travelling and showcasing his works all around the globe. Based in Spain, he was also the first to create the world's first digital “social” network – a network that was predicated on a decentralized-view of communication and a view that paid emphasis on participants, not users. We discuss how building platforms for the marginalized, the displaced, the demobilized - all over the world - has been a calling card for his art. Antoni explains how a “citizen's network” is more meaningful than a social media network. We also understand that the artist creates the sublime when the artist sees themselves as a true mediator.  Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/antoni-abad-6800bb2b/ Websites: www.blind.wiki, www.megafone.net, www.deaf.city Behind Greatness website: www.inspirenorth.com/podcast Behind Greatness IG: @behindgreatnesspodcast & @inspire_north The Behind Greatness theme music is provided by e-soundtrax, used under the Non-Commercial and Non-Monetized usage agreement. | Contact: info@esoundtrax.com | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmqmVRMWMj8pIW9K5bfuBjw

This is meant as a companion series to the Amazon Docuseries, LuLaRich, and is in no way affiliated with the film.* This interview takes place while LaShae was at the salon, and some background noise was unavoidable. Also, Shae's mic has some sound issues for a bit, but it does even out and fix itself. Adjust your volume accordingly. When Blye and Cori reached out to me, asking for Home Office employees, LaShae was the first name out of my mouth. Her interview was cut short in the Vice Documentary, and I wanted her to be able to tell her whole story with Amazon. As the "LuLaRoe Fairy Godmother" LaShae was witness to A LOT of shenanigans of the Bradham Clan, the good, bad and ugly. ALLEGEDLY. Shae spills A LOT of tea, and confirms a lot of rumors. We chat about the infamous sock monkey leggings, Home Office's "Zen Room", a hard drive LaShae kept everything she ever did on and Beyonce.
