Sports Mascots and the Media
This chapter critically assesses the relationships between sports mascots and the media. While sexist team names and Confederate symbols have attracted limited attention (Eitzen and Zinn, 1989, 1993; King and Springwood, 2001a; Vanderford, 1996), the use of (pseudo)Indian imagery in sports has dominated media coverage, scholarly inquiry, and political debates. Consequently, this chapter centers exclusively on Native American mascots in the media.
