Schools that continue to use Indian imagery and references claim that their use stimulates interest in Native American culture and honors Native Americans. These institutions have simply failed to listen to the Native groups, religious leaders, and civil rights organizations that oppose these symbols. These Indian-based symbols and team names are not accurate representations of Native Americans.

Opening Day Demonstration 2018

Come join us this year at "Progressive" Field as we continue our campaign against the Cleveland Baseball team name and Wahoo logo. Major League Baseball announced last month that Wahoo will be retired next year (not soon enough and nearly a half-century late). Help us keep the pressure on Cleveland and MLB until they abolish the team name and stop licensing, selling and displaying the Wahoo logo.

We are people, not mascots!

We meet two hours before game time, under the trees just north of Bob Feller statue. Bring a sign, make one, or use one of ours.

Viewpoint: Sask. rural water sources need different cleanup process

The reverse osmosis filters at the Yellow Quill First Nation's water treatment plant.

Larger Saskatchewan cities “import” great quality water from the Rocky Mountains via the South Saskatchewan River and, indirectly by the Buffalo Pound water treatment plant through diversions from Lake Diefenbaker. Unfortunately, many small municipalities and First Nations communities in Saskatchewan do not have good quality source water. Indeed, rural Saskatchewan has some of the poorest quality raw water sources anywhere. In terms of global water quality, we are right at the bottom. So much so that our provincial government felt it was necessary to condition our residents to accept drinking poorer quality water than most other people in the world.

"Trail of Tears" Movie -- Oberlin Indigenous Peoples' Day Film Series

This movie explores the resolve and resilience of the Cherokee people, who resisted removal from their homelands in the Southeast in every way they knew: assimilating, adopting a European-style government and legal system, adopting Christianity, and even taking their case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Though the Cherokee won recognition of tribal sovereignty in the U.S.
