The Elimination of Indigenous Mascots, Logos, and Nicknames. Organizing on College Campuses
Hofmann, Sudie
American Indian Quarterly, v29 n1-2 p156-177 Win-Spr 2005
In this article a brief history of activism on the American Indian mascot issue in Minnesota will be discussed with a specific focus on college campuses. The approaches taken at St. Cloud State University (SCSU) to create awareness on this issue and the successes and failures of actions taken to push for meaningful changes at the policy level at SCSU and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) will also be discussed. Possible responses to arguments made by opponents of these changes as well as tactics for organizing on campuses that play schools with American Indian mascots and nicknames will be considered.
