New York State barred the use of Indigenous imagery and mascots in the spring of 2023. One of the mascot names included in this is Southern Cayuga’s mascot, “The Chiefs.” As a result, Southern Cayuga is in the process of determining a new mascot to represent Southern Cayuga with pride. More information on this can be found on our school website, https://www.

Southern Cayuga is seeking nominations for our new mascot. The mascot committee, made up of students, staff, and community members, recently met to determine characteristics for the new mascot to embody. Please consider the following characteristics if you wish to make a nomination.

Southern Cayuga’s new mascot should:

· Work well with our current school colors, red and white, with black as an accent

· Be unique to our region, schools in our region encompass the following mascots: Blue Devils, Blue Raiders, Bobcats, Cardinals, Crusaders, Coyotes, Eagles, Grizzlies, Lake Hawks, Lions, Maroons, Olympians, Panthers, Spartans, Storm, Tigers, Trojans, and Wolves

· Be relatable to students

· Represent Southern Cayuga or our history in some manner

· Be a strong and powerful mascot, physically, athletically, and mentally

There are two ways to nominate a mascot.
