Imagining the Indian: The Fight Against Native American Mascoting with filmmaker Q&A

Imagining the Indian: The Fight Against Native American Mascoting is a feature-length documentary film that examines the movement to eliminate the use of Native American slurs, names, logos, images and gestures that many Native Americans and their allies find demeaning and offensive. The film investigates the impact that caricatures like Chief Wahoo — the cartoonish logo of the Cleveland Indians — gestures like the Atlanta Braves’ “tomahawk chop” and epithets like the Washington “Redskins” have on the Native community, the sports community and society in general.

Featuring a Q&A with Producer Yancey Burns and Composer Dawn Avery following the film.

Sponsored by the W&M Brafferton Initiative and W&M Strategic Cultural Partnerships
