"I Am Not a Mascot" student video

"I Am Not a Mascot" student video
And friends, the struggle continues. AIM-WEST will see about posting video about Mascots, on the website. Also, the AIM agenda in Minneapolis is set for June 3-5, 2010. People who are interested in traveling now need to start saving cash for a ticket. I didn’t see anything about lodging….We can talk more about this at the AIM-WEST meeting on Wednesday, May 14 at SFCC, (second Wednesday of the month…). And, also an update on the California State Board of Education with regards to Mascots in Public Schools.

ere at the University of Colorado Denver a group of undergraduate students in an Ethnic Studies class produced a video about the use of Indian mascots for sports teams called "I Am Not a Mascot". Some of the video focuses specifically on Colorado schools which currently use Indian mascots (or which have switched mascots), but much of the video is of more general interest.
