"Research has shown that the continued use of American Indian mascots, symbols, images and personalities has a negative effect on not only American Indians students but all students," American Psycological Association, apa.org
The American Psycological Association, along with hundreds of organizations including the NAACP and the Congress of American Indians have called for the end of Indian mascots. These offensive mascots perpetuate stereotypes of Indigenous people, subject Native kids to bullying and are historically inaccurate. Many are racist. Studies show Indian mascots help lead to Native children having low self esteem.
Hundreds of Indigenous Nations across the country would like to see these offensive and insulting mascots and images removed from our schools. Please sign this petition and share it with your friends.
