Most mascots are based on local history or significance. State bird (Cardinal). Local popular profession (Steeler). And in your case, local tribes (Redskins, Indians, Braves). The native Americans populated all of North, Central, and South America, as well as the Polynesian Islands. Eskimos, Aztec, Myan, Polynesian. All of the same people. Though the names are crude and inaccurate at times, they are based on the ferosity and determination of the warriors of those tribesmen. Names are chosen by teams out of respect and admiration. Something they aspire to emmulate. No football team would call themselves The Weaklings, or baseball team The Nazis. Names of teams are badges of honor and rememberance of the roots from which the locals came from or experienced. I believe more thought should be invested when it comes to refering to a race of people though. Unlike an animal or career, a breed of humans deserves respect of what it had or has accomplished and not be generalized with vague titles. Where you take this matter should be with your beliefs in hand with truth. Do your research so you can write or speak with conviction and learn something of history at the same time.

No, I think you sound self-righteous and holier-than-thou. Many, *many* Americans feel the way you do. You're not special or better for thinking this way, and you are far from unique. "American" is a pretty inclusive term.

Actually, America is big enough that there are plenty like you and me and every other type you can imagine!

You should play it off & ultimately compare it to the "American Cowboy" mascots & logos. Talk about the difference & why there are differences.

so you can learn. famous quote: "those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it" if you don't know the mistakes they made you could make the same mistakes. you could write your paper around that.
Astra Originally Answered: Why should we study native american history?
Why should Americans study anything BESIDES Native American history? The rest is just reading about the invaders of these lands and their mistakes.
