LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Two northern Idaho school districts with Tribal American mascots have received letters from the Nez Perce Tribal Executive Committee asking the names be changed.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that the Lewiston School District and Nezperce School District are responding to the recent letters with plans to look at possible changes.

Lewiston School District officials say they plan to meet today to review the history of the Sacajawea Junior High Braves mascot. Nezperce School District officials are conducting a public survey about the Nezperce High School Indians mascot. Officials are asking if the public would support a change and, if so, what mascot they would suggest.
