In Whose Honor? takes a critical look at the long-running practice—and controversy—of using American Indian mascots and nicknames in sports.

It follows the remarkable story of Native American artist and activist Charlene Teters—from her beginnings protesting against the Indian mascot at the University of Illinois, to the re-birth of the movement nationwide, and finally, a look at the backlash that occurs in the community where she first began.
