Indian-Pilgrim Wars in Claremont

A battle is brewing that will come to a head at the meeting tonight of the Claremont Unified School District. It seems that a parent, who may be a professor of English at UC Riverside, is protesting the 40-year tradition of the students at Condit and Mountain View Elementary Schools celebrate Thanksgiving by dressing in Pilgrim and Indian garb.

There are petitions flying. This was covered during the 4 o'clock hour on KFI's drive time show, John and Ken.

If you want to see muskets charged and scalps taken, be sure to attend the meeting tonight, 7:00 p.m., at the NEW Kirkendall Center, 170 W San Jose Avenue, Claremont. (This is in South Claremont, not at the former district offices on Baseline.)

There may be a connection to all of this and our post this morning. We are not the sharpest arrow in the quiver and are only now connecting the dots. More later...
