OPENING DAY PROTEST 2013 at Cleveland Baseball

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.

Click on the link above and you will see a picture of a Chief Wahoo shirt that has Chief Wahoo smoking a joint and it says "Chiefin in my Wahoo." You can buy that shirt at this website http://www.howsecollection.com/
but apparently it is sold out so that just shows how sad people really are. This shirt comes in different colors, those colors include red, blue, and white.

5 April 2012 - Statement of the Cleveland American Indian Movement on Forty Years of Protest against CLEVELAND BASEBALL

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.
