    That sounds like an incident at a bank in Massachusetts many years ago.  The bank's logo was a bust of Massasoit, leader of the Wampanoags, and of course a lot of branded items like pens, pencils, clothing, and signage featured the bust.

    It was time for a new shipment of pens for the branches.  The executive in charge of doing so looked at the proof of the artwork, scrawled "Heapum Okayem" on the proof, and sent it off to the printer.  

    He didn't think anything of it until word came from the bank's branch in Gay Head (now Aquinnah) that a local Wampanoag came in to make a deposit, picked up a pen, and....

    I think you can guess what happened next.
