The World Series begins in Cleveland this Tuesday, October 25. Join Cleveland American Indian Movement and the Native community as we gather at the stadium in protest of Cleveland Baseball's use of the "Indians" team name and the despicable "Wahoo" logo. Newspapers and broadcasters from around the world will be there, so now is the time to let your voice be heard!

We congregate 2 hours before the start of the game and break up around the opening pitch.

CLEVELAND:
Change your shame by changing the name!

Columbus Day Demonstration

Join Cleveland American Indian Movement, the Native community and our supporters for this denouncement of a mass murderer and rapist who is shamelessly honored every year. He was taken back to Spain in chains and died in disgrace. His legacy of trans-Atlantic slavery and genocide should not be glorified.

We will meet at the corner of Main Street and College Street in Oberlin, Ohio.

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.
