I believe that the hidden agenda behind Indian mascots and logos is about cultural, spiritual and intellectual exploitation. Therefore, the real issues are about power and control. These negative ethnic images are driven by those that want to define other ethnic groups and control their images. To me, power and control is the ability to make you believe that someone's truth is the absolute truth. Furthermore, it's the ability to define a reality and to get other people to affirm that reality as if it were their own.

The World Series begins in Cleveland this Tuesday, October 25. Join Cleveland American Indian Movement and the Native community as we gather at the stadium in protest of Cleveland Baseball's use of the "Indians" team name and the despicable "Wahoo" logo. Newspapers and broadcasters from around the world will be there, so now is the time to let your voice be heard!

Columbus Day Demonstration

Join Cleveland American Indian Movement, the Native community and our supporters for this denouncement of a mass murderer and rapist who is shamelessly honored every year. He was taken back to Spain in chains and died in disgrace. His legacy of trans-Atlantic slavery and genocide should not be glorified.

We will meet at the corner of Main Street and College Street in Oberlin, Ohio.
