Film screening: ‘In Whose Honor?’: The story of a woman who took on American Indian mascots for sports teams

American Indian mascots and nicknames have historically been first-round draft picks in American sports. But for Charlene Teters (Spokane), transplanting cultural rituals onto the field is a symbol of disrespect.

In In Whose Honor? (1997, 46 minutes), Jay Rosenstein follows Teters’ evolution from mother and student into a leading voice against the merchandising of American Indian symbols, and shows the lengths fans will go to preserve their mascots.
