Chief Illinewek
5
Arguments regarding Mascot
  • The name was used to honor of the founders of the
    state.
  • Opposing teams would use slogans like massacre
    the Indians

6
In the film, watch for
  • Arguments for and against the mascot.
  • How are the arguments for the mascot
  • Ideological Camouflage?
  • Political Denial?
  • How does the mascot create a hostile environment
    for Native Americans both at the University of
    Illinois and on other campuses?

7
For or Against?
  • It is important not to let a zealous few really
    censor people who want to express themselves
    through an art form in Chief Illiniwek.
  • To me, it is a compliment.
  • When they display the mascot, they are saying we
    own you.
  • What part of ouch dont you understand?

U. of Illinois Retires Indian Mascothttp//www.ny
times.com/aponline/sports/AP-Chief-Illiniwek.html
  • March 13, 2007 URBANA, Ill. (AP) -- The
    University of Illinois swept aside the last
    vestiges of Chief Illiniwek Tuesday, voting to
    retire the mascot's name, regalia and image.
  • The resolution lets Chancellor Richard Herman
    decide how and when the Chief Illiniwek name and
    image would stop being used and licensed to
    apparel makers and others.
  • The school would continue to call its sports
    teams the Fighting Illini under the resolution.

What Do These Statements Represent? (Ideological
Camouflage, Political Denial, Hostile Environment)
  • Chief Illiniwek was hung in effigy at the
    University of Iowa on Greek row.
  • Native Americans had to suffer racial slurs all
    week.
  • People would spit on, threaten or ridicule Teters
    when she protested alone.

10
What Do These Statements Represent? (Ideological
Camouflage, Political Denial, Hostile Environment)
  • Chief Illiniwek is a focal point that draws
    people together.
  • Native Americans who are not as involved would
    not understand. They should come to a game.
  • Chief Illiniwek is designed to be inspirational,
    majestic, reverent, moving.
  • People are not capable of understanding the
    environment in which we share and enjoy the chief.

11
What Do These Statements Represent? (Ideological
Camouflage, Political Denial, Hostile Environment)
  • The recommendation to stop using Chief Illiniwek
    was dropped from the final draft of the
    inclusiveness report because it was not an
    academic recommendation.
  • Study after study shows a direct link through the
    Native American images and low self esteem, low
    self worth, low performance scores in the
    classroom 1 in 5 Native American youth attempt
    suicide.
