Quick mascot facts on the State of North Dakota:

Since the early 1970s, the University of North Dakota has been the site of longstanding controversy concerning that school's use of its "Fighting Sioux" nickname.     Send e-mail to UND president Charles Kupchella.

In 1992, Grand Forks high school changed its "Redsk*ns" nickname to "Knights."

In October 2001 advocates from across the country convened at the Northern Plains Conference on American Indian Team Names and Logos held at the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks.  Regrettably, even while the conference was being held, the University of North Dakota's use of a race-related sports team nickname and logo spawned the creation of racist productCAUTION!  This page contains a graphic and obscene image that may be considered offensive.   

Shortly after the conclusion of the conference the Minnesota Indian Education Association passed a resolution in opposition to the University of North Dakota's use of the "Fighting Sioux" name and logo.
