Article "Indian to Meet Fate at Spider Rally Tonight"

Description

This article talks about the University of Richmond's anticipated football game against William & Mary and its mascot, the Indian. The campus held an annual rally or "trial" as they referred to it. For the "trial," they pretended to discuss the fate of the "Indian" mascot and decided that it was guilty and needed to be sentenced and punished on the football field, or "Hunting Ground." For the rally, members of the university and the Richmond community got together and danced in "Indian fashion," sang songs, yelled, and made a bonfire. The community prepared to seal the fate of William and Mary's mascot, the Indians.
