It has been brought to ICTMN’s attention that a news brief earlier this month, Obama Hails Adidas Stepping Up to End Indian Mascots, contained descriptions of recently released statistics and studies on mascots that were similar or identical to sections of the same author’s opinion piece published several months ago: Houska: Open Letter to Educators: Indian Mascots Harm Your Students. ICTMN and its editors have an obligation to our readers and writers to present clear, fresh writing in the most accurate context and to minimize any confusion. Accordingly, this month’s piece has been edited to provide a clear reference and delineation of what had been previously published. We will strive to do better on all fronts.
