Racial Slurs Have No Place in Football

Mascot-Native-jpeg.pngThe leaves are changing. The scent of pumpkin spice lattes is in the air. In short, it’s football season. And like millions of my fellow Americans, I love football.

But I’m also American Indian.

2015 Native Organizers Training a Big Success!
