A cheer team at the Canada-based University of Regina must undergo “sensitivity training” after dressing up like cowboys and Indians and posing for pictures.
CBC News reports:
University of Regina President Vianne Timmons issued a written release Sunday. It acknowledged that the team was part of a social event Friday evening that included “culturally inappropriate themes and costumes.”
“Further steps will require that the team’s coaches and team members discuss this matter as a group with the University’s Executive Lead on Indigenization and take cultural sensitivity training,” Timmons’ statement said. “Once these discussions have taken place, the University will determine whether further disciplinary actions are required.”
