I've had a hard time trying to explain why a Team called "Redskins" is so problematic. I've collaborated with another native artist who created this image. It depicts the irony that the Washington football team is named with a racial slur.
What if there was team called "Yellowskins" or "BlackSkins"? would that be acceptable in this modern age. Absolutely not. Well then why would "redskins" be?
Maybe the fact that is considered "ok" is a reflection on how the Native people are viewed-- or not viewed at all.
Maybe this is part of the reason why we are continually fighting for basic human rights. Like clean water, protection of our cemetaries, land grabs, sacred sites, etc.
Standing Rock was a perfect example of what we are still up against.
Maybe, just maybe, if we made enough noise to change a football team's name we could actually be visible enough to have those inalienable rights
