Presenter: David McKay Wilson

Wilson will discuss the history of the Wappinger tribe in the region, the scholarly research on the impact Native American-themed mascots have on Native American youths, and the national movement that has led to the retirement of such mascots at high schools, colleges, and professional sports teams.
