I think both sides are missing an opportunity here. I would love the see a required general education class where all students at the university are taught about the history of the tribe and native Americans in general. I would guess that if the student body were educated we would be less likely to find offensive behavior. I would also like to see one of the football halftimes turned over to the native American community to present to the fan base cultural and educational information. I wish we could make the school a model for cooperation with the native Americans we are supposed to represent.
