Amid controversies surrounding the group mascot and model of the Washington Redskins within the nationwide soccer League and using mascots by way of K–12 faculties, american citizens reveal an increasing sensitivity to the pejorative use of references to local americans by means of activities corporations in any respect degrees. In Indian Spectacle, Jennifer Guiliano exposes the nervousness of yank middle-class masculinity with regards to the transforming into commercialization of collegiate activities and the indiscriminate use of Indian id as mascots.
Indian Spectacle explores the ways that white, middle-class americans have fed on narratives of masculinity, race, and collegiate athletics during the lens of Indian-themed athletic identities, mascots, and track. Drawing on a cross-section of yank associations of upper schooling, Guiliano investigates the function of activities mascots within the substantial company of twentieth-century American university soccer so one can attach mascotry to expressions of group id, person belonging, stereotyped imagery, and cultural hegemony.  
Against a backdrop of the present point of the commercialization of collegiate sports—where the collective profit of the fifteen maximum grossing groups in department I of the nationwide Collegiate Athletic organization (NCAA) has good passed a billion dollars—Guiliano recounts the background of the construction and unfold of mascots and collage identities as anything certain up within the spectacle of halftime functionality, the expansion of collegiate festival, the effect of mass media, and the way athletes, coaches, band participants, spectators, college alumni, college, and directors, artists, writers, and participants of neighborhood groups all have contributed to the dissemination of principles of Indianness that's hardly ever rooted in local people’s real lives.
