Home to one of the most egregious tokens, "Chief Wahoo" used by the Cleveland "Indians" professional baseball team.  In addition to being subject to ongoing protests, the franchise has had a mascot related civil rights discrimination lawsuit filed against it in 1999.

In 1996, Miami University of Ohio, (Oxford) exchanged its "Redsk*ns" nickname for "Redhawks."  Though retaining its "Braves" nickname, Talawanda High School, also in Oxford, removed its costumed "Indian" mascot in 1997.

The Cleveland area Cuyahoga County Library instituted a dress code policy in 1999 banning "Chief Wahoo" from appearing on apparel worn by the library systems's 700 employees.

In 1997, the minor league Canton-Akron "Indians" renamed themselves the Akron "Aeros" and boosted their merchandise sales from $60,000 to $1.2 million, the largest merchandise income of any minor league team.
