Davis, Laurel R.
Multicultural Education, v9 n4 p11-14 Sum 2002
Lays out the main arguments against the use of Native American mascots, including that mascots represent racist stereotypes of Native Americans; the stereotypes focus on the past and obscure the lives of contemporary Native Americans; mascots misrepresent, distort, and trivialize many aspects of Native American culture; and mascot stereotypes have a negative impact on Native American lives.
