Playing Indian at Halftime: The Controversy over American Indian Mascots, Logos, and Nicknames in School-Related Events
Pewewardy, Cornel D.
Clearing House, v77 n5 p180 May-Jun 2004
This article discusses the creation of stereotypical Indian mascots, how society reinforces and accepts those stereotypes, how negative stereotypes have affected the relationship between American Indians and the rest of society, and it suggests solutions educators might use to eliminate these mascots from school-related events. The intent of this article is not to demean schools, but to provide a rationale and approach by which ethnocentrism, elitism, sexism, and racism effectively can be eradicated in schools.
