Native American Heritage Month Speak Out: Indian Mascots & Logos
The Washington Redskins...
The North Dakota Fighting Sioux...
Society is constantly exposed to inaccurate and demeaning images of American Indians. But logos and mascots are just part of the problem. During the program "American Indian Logos & Mascots: Only the Tip of the Problem of Continuing Racism Against American Indians," our HR colleague Rita Altmeyer takes a look at the pervasive stereotypical and racist images from the past and present, and in Wisconsin. Stop by the Walnut Room of the Student Center Wednesday at noon for this free discussion.
