University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

Racism and mascot resources

I've been following this story for awhile, because I'm a hockey nut, and think it's interesting, especially given the temperature around name and mascot changes in our own city...
'Home of the Fighting Sioux' signage removal begins at Ralph Engelstad Arena 

Last year, this same team was not allowed to compete in the championship tournament wearing their regular sweaters because of NCAA rules. 

And lastly, from the other side, a rather ignorant website defending the use of the "Fighting Sioux" name and "tradition." http://savethefightingsioux.com
