As we have seen this week, one of the more controversial issues with the representation of American Indians is the use of the terms “Indian” and Indian-related names with high school, college, and professional sports teams. Especially over the summer and through the fall of 2020, this issue has once again been in the spotlight, with several prominent teams either rethinking or changing their mascots. In your opinion, is this an issue that needs to be addressed, or is it something that people should just move past and ignore? Do you think these names should be kept to keep the tradition and merchandise relevant today, and/or that the names actual honor American Indians? If so, how? Conversely, if you feel these names are offensive and need to be changed, explain why. Also, if “Indian” related mascots should be changed, should other racial and ethnically-related team names, (such as Notre Dame’s “Fightin’ Irish”) be changed as well?
