"In Whose Honor" Screening

Presented by Marquette Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Peter White Public Library, Marquette MI

Oct 04 2017
"In Whose Honor" Screening

Free screening and discussion of “In Whose Honor” documentary.

American Indian mascots and nicknames have historically been first-round draft picks in American sports. But for Charlene Teters (Spokane), transplanting cultural rituals onto the field is a symbol of disrespect.

In In Whose Honor? (1997, 46 minutes), Jay Rosenstein follows Teters’ evolution from mother and student into a leading voice against the merchandising of American Indian symbols, and shows the lengths fans will go to preserve their mascots.

Come and join the discussion.

The screening is free and open to the public however, donations are welcome.
