After the Regents Board meeting, the Native American community held a protest outside of Welch Hall.
Some held up signs saying “first nation, first people” while others gave speeches about why Eastern needs to change the way it handles race.
The protest was in response to President Susan Martin keeping the retired Huron emblem on the band uniforms and dismissing the incident that happened with the Native American students on April 11.
Christopher Sutton, senior, said, “When we found out the Huron logo had been came back and put on the band uniforms, it raised our concerns with Susan Martin and her response was, ‘You should be thankful for what you have.’”
The speakers wanted to taint the legacy President Martin is leaving behind.
