Honouring Washington Redskins, Even Before The ‘Name’ Controversy
March 11, 2015 § 1 Comment
March 11, 2015, Long before the controversy over the NFL’s Washington, Redskins name, logo, and mascot erupted, USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops were supporting and expressing their enthusiasm for the team. Largely because while people in the USA communities that the Canada Scoops Victims, a.k.a., Sixties Scoops Victims were placed in after being ‘scooped’ emphasized cultural sensitivity-melting pot inclusion, i.e., a well-intentioned ignoring of one another’s cultural differences, within the NFL Redskins community, their cultural identity as North American Indians was called out, and out-and-out celebrated, revered.
Here is Washington Redskins own site that includes video testimony expressing Native American Indians own opinions on the NFL-Redskins name, logo and mascot: http://www.redskinsfacts.com/
That of the 1st USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops is not included in the videos but was expressed for Aboriginal People’s Television Network. In that video he explains that as he told judges and court staff, as well as staff of members of congress that worked on his immigration file, the ongoing importance of Washington Redskins to him.
