Tom Longboat's School Logo!
The Tom Longboat Running Wolves
"Our school logo was designed by a prominent Six Nations artist, Arnold Jacobs, who personally knows the Longboat family and the history of the groups that form that community. As you can see, the logo is simple yet very meaningful. The hills represent the specific nation to which Tom Longboat’s family belonged. They were known as the People of the Hills. The trees among the hills are a significant symbol in the indigenous culture as it represents the strong connection to nature. The wolf is the specific clan to which Tom Longboat’s family belonged. They were known as the Wolf Clan. With these characteristics, we have a symbol that represents more than what Tom Longboat accomplished as an athlete, but also recognizes his indigenous ancestry and culture."
