Apache for Life

Posted by Constance Townsend-Jordan on April 22, 2014 at 3:43pm 0 Comments

I too, am a Proud Centennial Apache and who agrees that the issue of labeling is important. While I still have feathers in my heart, we must consider and understand how a group can be disparaged by labels.  

I am not sure how many of you Apaches out there, have placed “tongue in cheek” and wondered how Compton can yet have a “Tarbabe” mascot. Systematically, I believe we have taught that it is acceptable to mock our culture, while also pretending to honor it; as represented by the…

It's Time to discuss this Issue. The Mascot

Posted by Gordon Marble on April 21, 2014 at 10:57am 5 Comments

One of the most precious titles I have been called in my life is the title "Centennial Apache" Seeing the profile of that Native American in that Head Dress still makes me well up with pride.

But lately there have seen discussions regarding the Native American mascots as  insulst to America's original people. 

With the pressure to change the name of the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indian's names and mascots, I can't be blind to the fact that my beloved school  may need to…

I too, am a Proud Centennial Apache and who agrees that the issue of labeling is important. While I still have feathers in my heart, we must consider and understand how a group can be disparaged by labels.  I am not sure how many of you Apaches out there, have placed “tongue in cheek” and wondered how Compton can yet have a “Tarbabe” mascot. Systematically, I believe we have taught that it is acceptable to mock our culture, while also pretending to honor it; as represented by the mascot in our schools.In hearing and reading about this issue for some time, I know that the Indians care a bit more about how the mascots are represented as savages, fierce and angry warriors, or comical representations of their people. I am proud to say that this has not been the case with our Centennial Apache. Our mascot stands regal, strong and mighty---- fighting for Victory, (right)?   I agree that I do not want to take down our Mighty Apache. However, it is a fact that people feel disparaged by these…See More

I wanted to challenge our cross town rivals mascot. The Compton Tarbabes. It is a derogatory name for African Americans. I recently read an article in the L.A. Times regarding changing their Name and logo and I still support it,But am I being a hypocrite by denouncing Compton's Tarbabe and defending Centennial's Apache?I am not calling for a change. That is not the purpose of this…See More
