FRANKLIN LAKES - A proposal to change the Franklin Lakes town seal is not sitting well with some Native Americans.
The current town logo features a Native American on police cars and other municipal vehicles. Town officials recently asked high school students to come up with new logos. However, the still life and Native American portrait that was designed has one chief upset.
Chief Dwaine Perry, of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, says, " There's a vast difference between an image of a Native American that is intricate to the history of the community and to the country and a logo sort of caricature for fun."
Some residents disagree while others say they hope the chief is consulted before a new logo is chosen.
