CAMBRIDGE - There's a big meeting in Cambridge Thursday where the school board will hear from the community about the notion of dropping the school's nickname, the Indians.

There's a movement across the country to change school nicknames that refer to Native Americans, and in Cambridge there are competing factions.

Those in favor of the change, call the nickname and logo dehumanizing.

Hear from people both for and against the change – and why, by watching the video of Mark Mulholland's story.
