I do think teams and schools should be allowed to use Native Americans as mascots or names By Raquel Vaca

One reason I think that schools and teams should be able to use Native American names because it can help fix the damage that was done to them. In other words I think that by naming schools and teams after Native Americans it can help give them a better reputation, and a more accurate description of them. In the article it says "Our team name captures the best of who we are and who we can be, by staying true to history and honoring the deep and enduring values our name represents." This supports my claim, because it talks about how the name, and therefore the people behind it, represents staying true to history and how it stands for great values.

Another reason that i think that they should be able to use Native Americans as names, is because it can help honor them and thier history. It also brings more attention to them. In the text it says "They honor us." This supports my claim because it talks about how the Native Americans agree, and that by naming things after them we help honor them, and all that they stand for.
