Our annual event protesting Cleveland Baseball's use of "Chief Wahoo" logo and "Indians" team name. Since 1973, we have 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 bigoted, racist, and shameful “Indians” team name and the despicable “Chief Wahoo" logo.
