The Azusa Unified School District is discussing making changes to Azusa High’s Aztec mascot.

“We are looking forward to working with the committee and gathering stakeholder feedback to develop a culturally sensitive mascot, logo, or symbol that our community can be proud of,” Superintendent Arturo Ortega’s office said in a statement.

The district is considering changes as mascots depicting indigenous people are being removed from sports teams at all levels, from local schools and colleges to professional teams.
