More Than a Word – Movie and Discussion
January 22, 6:30-8:00pm
$10 preregistered/prepaid. $15 at the door.
More Than a Word is a movie directed by two brothers, John and Kenn Little, both members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. They are part of a growing movement to change the name of the Washington R*dskin’s football team. They traced how the word “r*dskins” evolved from being a racist and slanderous term to being connected with one of NFL’s prestigious teams. The movie seeks to place the controversy in a larger context of Native American history. More Than a Word aims to clarify what is at stake in contemporary discussions regarding cultural appropriateness and Native American mascots.
Tucker Quetone will facilitate this discussion.
