Chiefs, Braves, and Tomahawks: The Use of American Indians as University Mascots.
Longwell-Grice, Robert; Longwell-Grice, Hope
NASPA Journal, v40 n3 Spr 2003
Many colleges continue to use Native American images as their mascots despite mounting calls to cease this practice. Using a postcolonial critical framework, the authors discuss the various justifications given for using Native American images as mascots, describe the effect their continued use has, and urge action to effect change that is educationally, politically and culturally sound.
