Join Cleveland American Indian Movement, the Native community and our supporters as we continue our protest of Cleveland Baseball’s “Indians” team name. The time for this pending name change is long overdue. This year we hope you too will join us at “Progressive” Field on Opening Day, April 5, 2021 to send the clear message to Cleveland Baseball that the time for change has come. Borrow one of our signs, or bring your own!
Moderator's Note: Opening Day has been postponed due to Covid-19 fears. When it has been rescheduled, we will reschedule our demonstration.
Join Cleveland American Indian Movement, our supporters, and the Native community at "Progressive" Field, 11am Thursday March 26, as we insist that Cleveland Baseball stop its exploitive use of the "Indians" team name and the racist Wahoo logo which it continues to license.

CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland American Indian Movement, the second oldest urban AIM chapter nationally, will demonstrate outside "Progressive" Field during Cleveland Indians vs Atlanta Braves game Friday April 19, in protest of the continued use of American Indian symbols and team names in Major League Baseball.
Join us once again as we gather at Cleveland Baseball to protest the use of the "Indians" team name and the continued licensing of the Wahoo logo. With your support we have been able to bring the exploitation of indigenous people as sports mascots to international attention. But we cannot stop here. The racist behavior that fans display at Cleveland Baseball is not a product of Wahoo, Wahoo is a product of the racism at the stadium.

Come join us this year at "Progressive" Field as we continue our campaign against the Cleveland Baseball team name and Wahoo logo. Major League Baseball announced last month that Wahoo will be retired next year (not soon enough and nearly a half-century late). Help us keep the pressure on Cleveland and MLB until they abolish the team name and stop licensing, selling and displaying the Wahoo logo.
We are people, not mascots!
We meet two hours before game time, under the trees just north of Bob Feller statue. Bring a sign, make one, or use one of ours.
