Asheville, NC to speak out on
American Indian stereotypes
and the harmful effects
of Indian Mascots
On Thursday, November 12,1998 Ms. Charlene Teters, a national leader in the movement to eliminate the use of Indian Mascots, traveled to Asheville, NC to deliver a public address on the issue of Indian Mascots such as the one used at Erwin High School in Buncombe County, NC.  Erwin High School and the Buncombe County School Board have been receiving an increasing level of national attention due to their continued refusal to enforce the School Boards' non-discrimination policy as it relates to American Indians.  For more information on Ms. Teters and her visit to Asheville follow the links below.
