South Dakota high school cancels homecoming after Go back to the Rez attack on Native American

South Dakota high school cancels homecoming after 'Go back to the Rez' attack on Native American students

The homecoming dance, parade and football game at a Sturgis, South Dakota high school have been cancelled after social media showed “Go back to the Rez” painted on a car that was destroyed prior to the scheduled game with Pine Ridge High School for students on the nearby Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

“The incident has caused severe backlash, including several Facebook threats from people affiliated with both sides,” NBC Newscenter 1’s Sam Kraemer reported.

One particularly worrisome image spray-painted above the “go back to the Rez” message are the letters SS, which can refer to Schutzstaffel, Adolph Hitler’s paramilitary force. Skinheads and neo-Nazi’s often use such symbolism to express their views of white supremacy.


'SS' graffiti many social media users said resembled a Nazi Swastika.
