We always have a few on-going campaigns and projects. And, we are always in need of volunteers and people of conscience to help us organize and carry-out our campaigns.

STATEMENT OF THE CLEVELAND AMERICAN INDIAN MOVEMENT ON FORTY YEARS OF PROTEST AGAINST CLEVELAND BASEBALL

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

For four decades the Cleveland American Indian Movement has strongly denounced Cleveland Baseball's use of Native references as bigoted, racist and shameful. Since 1972 we have called for the immediate removal of the team name “Indians” and the logo “Chief Wahoo” due to their offensive nature as historical symbols of genocide and White Supremacy. For forty years Cleveland Baseball has disregarded our demands in an effort to make a buck.
