UND trying to hold on to its Fighting Sioux nickname

The Sioux Indians may lose their fight to get UND to change their mascot, according to the Star Tribune.

The Indians are caught in a Catch-22 where they'll be made the bad guy if they don't comply with the Universities wishes, according to Clay Jenkinson, the Theodore Roosevelt scholar in residence at Dickinson (N.D.) State University said.

"It [is] outrageous to make North Dakota's Indians bear the burden of settling a controversy they didn't create, about a nickname that appropriates their culture without their consent,"Jenkinson said.
