Truman: More than a Word — Native American-Based Sports Mascots 

Loading Events

What happens when we unpack the American custom of naming sports teams for the Native inhabitants of this continent? What does it mean to reduce our fellow human beings to the status of mascots?  

We will be viewing “More Than a Word”, a documentary about the movement to change the name of the Washington R—skins professional football team, and discuss this important topic. 

This event is part of our larger celebration of Native American Heritage Month.

Please join us in the Truman College Main Building, Student Activities Center, Room 1623.
