AAA Statement on Sports Team Mascot Names

Adopted by the AAA Executive Board March 20, 2015

Whereas:

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT The American Anthropological Association calls for professional and college sport organizations to immediately denounce and abandon the use of American Indian nicknames, logos, and mascots, while respecting the right of individual tribes to decide how to protect and celebrate their respective cultural heritage.
