Originally aired on thePBS series P.O.V., this award-winning and critically acclaimed documentary examines the racism, paternalism, and stereotyping -- inadvertent or not -- in making sports mascots out of Native Americans. Director Jay Rosenstein profiles Native American Charlene Teters and her fight to remove such mascots. Rosenstein tackles the issue of where free speech ends, featuring corporate sports flacks figuratively wrapping themselves in the American flag in defense of their mascots, and insisting that such mascots honor Native Americans. The antics of mascots on the sidelines and caricatured logos argue otherwise. Hailed as "powerful" by the Chicago Tribune. The documentary won a CINE Golden Eagle.
