The recent news about the Washington Redskins losing patent protection for their name is a long time coming — even if it does remind me of what might be the most on-point Onion article ever. I’m happy someone’s finally trying to leverage something to get the D.C. team to change their name.
Plus, I figure it’s as good a time as ever to trot out the audio essay I wrote senior year of college about my time in the Indian Guides and as a Hart High Indian. And by “trot out” I really mean remind me how great this art form is and convince myself to try to make another audio essay. So stay tuned?
Anywho, here it is: Cub Scouts and Indians.
(Big thanks to the Dandy Warhols, the Village People, the Hart High Regiment, and the lovely singing voices of Winter 2011’s English 191T.)
