Blackhawks logo statue defaced with graffiti, paint originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
A Blackhawks logo statue outside the United Center was defaced with graffiti and paint overnight.
According to Scott Powers of The Athletic, the destroyed sculpture was covered by a tarpaulin and guarded by a fence as of Monday evening.
The Blackhawks released a statement in July saying they stand by their Native American name and logo:
“The Chicago Blackhawks name and logo symbolize an important and historic person, Black Hawk of Illinois' Sac & Fox Nation, whose leadership and life has inspired generations of Native Americans, veterans, and the public. We celebrate Black Hawk's legacy by providing ongoing reverential examples of Native American culture, traditions, and contributions, and by providing a platform for real dialogue with local and national Native American groups. As the team grew in popularity over the past decade, so did our platform and our work with these important organizations.
“We recognize that there is a fine line between respect and disrespect, and we commend other teams for their willingness to participate in this conversation. Going forward, we are committed to raising the bar even higher to raise awareness of Black Hawk and the important contributions made by all Native American people. We will continue to act as stewards of our name and identity, and do so with a commitment to evolve. Our efforts in this area have been sincere and varied, and the way forward will be based on this experience to grow as an organization and broaden our efforts. "
