Product Description

- Does using Native American images and names in professional, collegiate, and high school sports teams reinforce and perpetuate stereotypes?


- By closely examining an array of media, including texts, cartoons, and a brief film clip, students will question the consequences of using Native American emblems in educational and sports arenas. The implicit goal of this lesson, and those that would directly follow, is for students to understand how sports mascots perpetuate racial stereotypes of Native Americans, as well as how writing, art, and film can be used as an effective means of resistance and activism.
