Come and show your support for Indigenous Peoples' Day as Oberlin City Council prepares to become the first city in Ohio to adopt this holiday. This is the third and final reading of the resolution to adopt; the previous two readings passed unanimously so we anticipate that this resolution will indeed pass. A strong showing of support from indigenous people will be welcome.

Opening Day Demonstration 2017

sundance's picture

Since 1973, Cleveland American Indian Movement has repeatedly objected to the degrading,racist depictions of Native people by Cleveland Baseball by demonstrating at every Opening Day. We continue to insist that Cleveland Baseball abolish it use of the clearly racist, exploitative and shameful “Indians” team name and the bigoted, despicable “Chief Wahoo” logo.

Marketing a flamboyant wrong for the sake of profit means that Cleveland's civic pride rests upon racial humiliation and degradation, not “honor”. Isn't 100 years enough?

John Winthrop, a founder of the Massachusetts Bay colony considered this wave of illness and death [among Natives] to be a divine miracle. He wrote to a friend in England, "But for the natives in these parts, God hath so pursued them, as for 300 miles space the greatest part of them are swept away by smallpox which still continues among them. So as God hath thereby cleared our title to this place, those who remain in these parts, being in all not 50, have put themselves under our protection.
