Description

The Native American Mascot Controversy: A Handbook is a collection of 19 essays edited by C Richard King about the historical background and continuing education problems associated with the school team mascot issue. The volume is backed with arguments against the so-called benign practice of educational institutions assigning Native American logos to their sports teams. In addition papers about the psychological toll this practice takes on the Native American students attending the particular institution are included. Others examine the deep-seated racism embedded in the offensive caricatures of team mascots. The editor includes papers about action that can be taken to stem this inherent racist policy. To support this enlightening research is an appendix listing 24 the complete text of documents, policies, resolutions, and legislation associated with this issue. This is an important handbook about sports team mascots and what can be done about them.
