In Whose Honor?

Filmmaker Jay Rosenstein focuses on the story of Charlene Teters (Spokane) whose campaign against Chief Illiniwek, mascot of University of Illinois, forced many to rethink the larger issue of culture and identity and their representation in the media, and effects on both Native Americans and non-Natives.

An artist presentation by Tschetan started the screening!
