Bunky Echo-Hawk Says 'Honor YOU' to Racist Sports Mascots


Pawnee artist Bunky Echo-Hawk created an “Honor YOU” painting to share his frustration with racist sports mascots. In the painting above, he takes aim at the Cleveland Indians’ Chief Wahoo.

Echo-Hawk also painted a second potrait that features the Redskins. The painting, called "NotYourMascot," was painted with Acrylic on archival paper and shows a Native American man with both of his middle fingers up. Chief Wahoo and the Washington football team's logos are on his left and right hand, respectively.

The artwork was painted on a “15 x 11” mixed media paper.
