An Interesting Seattle Seahawks Kickstarter

Even though a lived in Seattle for five years I had never heard the story behind the inspiration for the Seattle Seahawks logo until coming across this article on a proposed Kickstarter campaign. The logo was inspired by this piece of Native art  and you can clearly see the similarities between the mask and...

...the logo the team used in the 70's and 80's. The Kickstarter campaign is to move the mask from its home in Maine to the Burke Museum in Washington until next July.
