Having waited five years to take action on a discrimination related appeal filed in 1996, in April 2001 the New York State Education Department issued an official request for all New York public schools using "Indian" themed mascots, symbols, and symbols to cease such practices as soon as practical.

Although the Onteora school district in Boiceville, New York, voted in January 2000 to change its "Indians" nickname and related practices, a reactionary backlash created a very divisive situation. Shortly thereafter, newly elected board members rescinded an anti-discrimination policy and possibly became the first public body in the United States to take such action.  In November 2000, news of support for the district from white racists was made public.

New Lebanon Central School District changed its "Indian" related sports team token in 2000.

In the spring of 2000, the Canajoharie school district and community distinguishes itself by wisely deciding to retire the "Redskins" nickname formerly used by the district's sports teams.

Following an appeal concerning a public school's use of the "Red Raiders" nickname, the New York State Education Department ordered a statewide review of the issue in 1998.  Though completed in January 1999, the report's release is still pending while awaiting review by the Department's legal counsel.  (October 1999)

Home to the largest Catholic university in America, St. John's, which retired its "Redmen" nickname in 1995.

The Toronto Bluejays triple-A farm team in Syracuse, NY, changed its nickname from the "Chiefs" to the "Skychiefs" in 1996.

Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY, changed its "Indian" related nickname in 1994.

In 1988, Siena College in Loudonville, NY, changed  its "Indians" nickname to the "Saints."

Syracuse University retired its "Saltine Warrior" mascot in 1979.

First approached in 1975 by a Seneca delegation that visited the players and coaches, St. Bonaventure changed its "Brown Indians" and "Brown Squaws" related nicknames in 1979.
