I feel this image is saying that native people should not be used as a mascot or any form of a sign for the public. They are human beings, and they should get treated like human beings.

My stand on this topic is that people use native culture as a sign or something to put out to the public. That’s not a good thing to do because people are going to treat them like they are animals, just not humans.

Another thing that people do and what makes me upset with this problem is the people is dehumanizing natives and taking their culture away from them.
