Join us for a screening of this meaningful documentary film and a critical discussion about language, culture and identity from the perspective of Native Americans, in conjunction with the Mascots exhibit.

Rising Voices tells the story of a passionate, dedicated and diverse group of people, including members of the Lakota community and linguists from outside of the community, who are working together to save the language and restore it to its rightful place in Lakota and American culture.

About Mascots

Mascots explores the history of mascots depicting Native Americans in athletics, addressing the debate of team names and cultural appropriation. Mascots is curated by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in partnership with Xavier University.
