  •  I think the idea is stereotyping in general (4+ / 0-)

    Assuming that sports team names based on Native Americans is supposed to represent some trait associated with them - even if the trait is perceived as positive - it's just the idea of stereotyping any group that is problematic.

    To the extent that it's aimed at "acknowledging" Native Americans, how about some better education of non-Native people (so that they don't think sport team names is the way to go), increased representation in the media and government, etc.
