SM North is now ‘Home of the Bison,’ but school’s former Indians mascot isn’t totally gone yet

SM North Bison

Shawnee Mission North is starting the school year off as the Home of the Bison for the first time. Still, the 2021-22 school year is a transitional period, meaning while the Bison name can be seen on the fieldhouse floor above, Indian signage and gear may still be seen throughout the school year.

Shawnee Mission North is now the Home of the Bison, but students, families and district patrons shouldn’t be surprised to see the school’s former Indians mascot pop up from time to time this school year.

Officials at Shawnee Mission’s oldest high schools say they will be in a transitional period for the 2021-22 school year as they formally make the switch.
