    It was about the same time Land ‘O Lakes removed their Native American woman from their butter packaging. I remember reading about it on TTR but I can’t put a time stamp on it. Maybe 2-3 years ago? I remember it said the blue eyed woman on the door was created in the likeness of the owners wife or daughter or something, but who knows. That could be all here-say.

    The "Indian" girl image depicted on Navajo tractors is that of the owners daughter when the daughter was dressed up for Halloween at the ripe old age of 15.

    I quit buying Land O Lakes products when they took the Indian girl off. I have two daughters that are half Indian and they were insulted when Land O Lakes removed that picture.

    Yea it’s all getting a bit ridiculous. Kind of like when they went back to old Looney Toons and edited out Elmer Fudds gun.

    What can I say, it's the world we live in right now. Everyone has to protect their brand some kind of way I guess. I never even noticed Navajo changed their logo. I never thought that one was a big deal since its more of a tribute to someone's heritage or something.I'm somewhat in favor of some of those changes. I was glad when the Washington Commanders dropped the Redskins name. I never liked that at all and that was long before the woke era. To me that particular one always felt like a racial slur. At least Tribe Transportation has the logo of the arrowhead on their trailers. It's probably better to do that, use objects rather than actual facial images, because there are still so many proud Native Americans living here. Entities can pay homage to them without having to use an actual face
