In Whose Honor? takes a critical look at the long-running
practice of "honoring" American Indians as mascots and nicknames in
sports. It follows the story of Native American mother Charlene Teters,
and her transformation into the leader some are calling the "Rosa Parks
of American Indians" as she struggles to protect her cultural symbols
In Whose Honor? looks at the issues of racism, stereotypes, minority representation and the powerful effects of mass-media imagery, and the extent to which one university will go to defend and justify its mascot.
