Connecticut schools that insist on using Native American nicknames and mascots without written consent from tribal leaders could see their budgets on the chopping block. State senators passed a budget bill Tuesday containing a provision that cut districts off from the Mashantucket Pequot/Mohegan Fund, which generates education revenue at the state’s Indian-run casinos. Money would be withheld to schools that don’t have permission to use “any name, symbol or image that depicts, refers to or is associated with a state or federally recognized Native American tribe or a Native American individual, custom or tradition, as a mascot, nickname, logo or team team.”
