In Whose Honor? is a one-hour award-winning documentary that brings attention to stereotype endorsements of American Indians and their prevalence in sports and media. Moderators Charlene Teters and Cydnee Weber engage panelists on the impacts of American Indian mascots, images, and symbols on the identity and academic development experiences of American Indian college students.
