I strongly oppose the use of native imagery and racial slurs as team mascots and nicknames. These displays are in no way "honoring" any Native American, living or deceased.

We need your help to counter the weak and baseless statements of the Washington team owner and NFL Commissioner, they claim that Indian Country does not support the removal of these disrespectful emblems and nicknames that do not honor Native peoples and harm our Native youth.
We have been urged to continue to send copies of letters, resolutions, and statements that reflect the opposition of our councils, school boards, and communities to the NCAI in Washingotn D.C.
These messages and comments are being put to good use in an effort to combat Dan Snyder's claims by the National Congress of American Indians in Washington D.C.
Now is the time to raise our collective voices. lets get this done!
##### PLEASE ##### If you are a native American please put in Parenthesis your tribal affiliation i.e. (Yurok) next to your last name. This is IMPORTANT to show how there is complete opposition to racist mascots from all tribes and non-native alike
