RED MESA, AZ - OCTOBER 17: Covered and unusable water fountains are seen in the hallway at Red Mesa High School on October 17, 2014 in Red Mesa, AZ. The school's drinking water is undrinkable due to the high levels of arsenic. The Red Mesa Redskins is a small Navajo school in northeast Arizona. The Redskins became the school's mascot in 1974 when a student named Raymond Oldman thought of the name after several students were asked to come up with a school mascot. The school is on the Navajo reservation and when the Navajos are asked about their mascot, most are proud to be Redskins. The team logo is a replica of NFL's Washington Redskins.
