Put the Fighting Sioux name back at UND. Right the wrong because the truth does matter!

KNOW THE TRUTH. The truth has never been told regarding the Fighting Sioux name at UND.

The Fighting Sioux name was given in exchange for educational opportunities for the future generations of Sioux children. The gift that was sealed through the Sacred Pipe Ceremony is being disregarded by a handful of politically correct individuals who disrespect the customs of the Native American culture.

By giving your support to reinstate the name you are saying that it is time to KNOW THE TRUTH behind why the name was taken away. But more importantly it shows that you support the VISION of the four Sioux Tribal Leaders, Ed Loon, Aljoe Agar, Frank Buffalo Man and Bernard Standing Crow and the sanctity of the religious pipe ceremony of July 1969. The pipe ceremony sealed the approval for the University of North Dakota to be forever known as the Fighting Sioux with the exchange of gifts during the ceremony. The sanctity of the pipe is bonding and is not to be broken. Once a name is given, it can never be taken back. The Sioux have already blessed the University of North Dakota with the honor and privilege of their name.

By signing the petition, you are supporting the incredible vision the Sioux and University Leaders, at that time, had for the educational opportunities for the many future generations of Sioux children. They saw education has a beacon to a better understanding and knowledge for all people.

Join us in restoring the traditions, honor, heritage and value that has branded and bonded 80 years of alumni, students and fans to an incredible and untouchable name; FIGHTING SIOUX. Sign the petition and pledge your support in bringing back the Fighting Sioux name forever and embracing the vision of education.

Help us build a new platform that elevates the proud Sioux name, brings educational opportunities to all and instills in all of us a priceless spiritual bond that cannot be broken or taken from us.

Let’s right the wrong, because the Truth matters.
