In my thoughts, this woman is trying to inform the world that using mascots means something bigger and its hurting her and her culture because in the image she said “ I  am a descendant of a warrior who survived genocide. Which mean that sports and other things are using these mascots for in a racist way and using hand sign the Indians used to do back in the old times. Using a human like they use animals as mascots make them think that they are less human and they don’t care about them and they use them as jokes.
