The American Anthropological Association recently condemned the use of Indian mascots in any form—a concrete denunciation of a practice under discussion for several years. A related discussion is about the historic agreements with Native American tribes and the value of recognizing the sovereignty of the 566 tribal nations in the United States. Jason Younker is at the forefront of these discussions.

Experiencing Inequity in Law Enforcement

Hayes — a biologist and professor of Integrative Biology at University of California, Berkeley — faces similar opposition.
