Ending the Legacy of Racism in Sports & the Era of Harmful “Indian” Sports Mascots

Organization: National Congress of American Indians

View Website
The report by the National Congress of American Indians details a range of issues: the harm stereotypes have on Native Youth and the overwhelming support for ending harmful mascots by organizations, tribal governments, the NCAA, high schools, community groups, and individuals. The report also reviews in depth the well-documented legacy of racism in the Washington football team’s history, including factual rebuttals to the Washington football team’s false claims that NCAI leadership at one point endorsed the use of the “Redsk*ns” mascot.
