Native American Mascots

Posted on March 5, 2012 by


For my Native American project I have been looking into the debate of Native American sports mascots, from high school sports to professional leagues. I find this topic very interesting, because it is a controversy that has been going on for a long time, and everybody has a slightly different opinion on it.

When researching my topic, I have been looking at archives of newspaper articles involving mascot debates. These articles are good, because they give a Native American perspective and also an average American perspective.

The purpose of this presentation will be to inform the audience about Native American sports mascots so that the audience can take a viewpoint on the topic. I want the audience to be contemplating the tough questions like: Why the Fighting Irish acceptable and the Redskins not? These are the types of things that I want the audience to come away with after my presentation.
