Native American Guardian’s Association founder pressures NFL team to return to ‘Redskins’ name

“At this moment in history, we are formally requesting that the team revitalize its relationship with the American Indian community by (i) changing the name back to “The Redskins” which recognizes America’s original inhabitants and (ii) using the team’s historic name and legacy to encourage Americans to learn about, not cancel, the history of America’s tribes and our role in the founding of this Great Nation,” the letter declares.

Davidson, who according to NAGA’s website “is a full-blood Dakota Sioux and an enrolled member of the Spirit Lake Tribe from North Dakota” also threatened to push for a boycott movement to apply pressure if needed.

“NAGA stands ready to work with you and your ownership group to bring back the historic name and rebuild the team’s relationship with America’s original inhabitants. We are requesting a NAGA working group to meet with your organization to begin further dialogue on next steps,” the letter states. “Should we need to encourage a national boycott similar to what happened to Anhuser Busch [sic] (Bud Light) … WE WILL DO JUST THAT!”

 

The team announced in 2020 that it planned to officially drop the Redskins name and logo by the beginning of the 2020 season. After going by the “Washington Football Team” for a substantial period of time, the team announced the “Commanders” name in 2022

A petition that calls for a return to the Redskins name has garnered more than 73,000 signatures.
