Cultural Event: Screening and Discussion – More Than a Word

For the 2017 Native American Heritage Celebration, OMSS will be screening the film entitled “More Than A Word” on Tuesday, November 7th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the University Center 209. “More Than a Word” is a film on Native American-based sports mascots and the Washington Redskins. The film analyzes the Washington football team and their use of the derogatory term R*dskins. Using interviews from both those in favor of changing the name and those against, “More Than a Word” presents a deeper analysis of the many issues surrounding the Washington team name. The documentary also examines the history of Native American cultural appropriation.
