'A Humbling (Foundation) Admission About Indian Mascots
... and a Glimmer of Hope for the Future'

An opinion article by Raymond Foxworth (at right)First Nations Development Institute's Vice President of Grantmaking, Development and Communications, was posted yesterday on the website of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy

Titled A Humbling (Foundation) Admission About Indian Mascots ... and a Glimmer of Hope for the Future, it discusses the laudable Robert Wood Johnson Foundation action recently taken against racist mascots, but he also shows how it illustrates a symptom of a larger illness in philanthropy toward Native American causes.

He asks the question: "How is it that in 2018, we are still complacent in subjecting Native people to deliberate mistruths and falsehoods and rendering them invisible in American society, including in philanthropy? How is it that now, when information is more readily available than at any other time in history, we continue to be content in our ignorance of Native people and communities?"
