Fort Defiance HSIndians ︎ Majors
The mascot for this school was pretty straightforward. Since the word “fort” is in the name of the school, I assumed there was some sort of military element in or around the school. Sure enough, there is an old military academy museum right down the road called Augusta Military Academy Museum. Back when the museum was an actual academy, it served as a way to recruit and train for the US Army. I then looked through some ranks of the army from the time and settled on the name “Majors” and designed a soldier silhouette.
