Chief Wahoo was never a symbol of anything else to me other than baseball and the enduring hope that our beloved Tribe would someday win a World Series. In fact, before these misguided perceptions of a few activists determined that the caricature was somehow demeaning, I hardly thought of Chief Wahoo as even being an Indian. I have always supported native Americans, but could not support this drive to change our Cleveland baseball traditions more. Plus, it seems to me, considering all of the problems that American Indians face today, including alcoholism, poverty, and challenges in education, you would think that they would have more important causes to invest their time!
