The argument of Native American mascots By : Mario isidro

Do you think teams and schools should be allowed to use Native American mascots? Name your reasons.

I do think teams and schools should be allowed to use Native American mascots. One of my reason being that it would honor the Native American. In the text it said, "We seminoles embrace the mascot," says James Billie, the tribes chairman. "They honor us."I chose this quote because James Billie is a Native American, and he says it's okay for them to use there name as there team name.

Another reason is that it's representing them. Another quote is, "Our team name captures the best of who we are and who we can be, by staying true to our history and honoring the deep and enduring values of our name represents." - Daniel Snyder. This quote supports my claim because Daniel Snyder has denied many times to change his teams name. It states that it shows who they can be.

These are the teams that are using Native Americans as mascots.
