This effort is the continued brazen attempt at controlling the perception of another race of human beings by the very race that nearly exterminated it. Sioux is not even a part of the Lakota, Nakota, or Dakota language. Any Lakota, Nakota, or Dakota who backs the "Fighting Sioux" name doesn't know where they come from and are living in ignorance. The word "Sioux" is a French mispronunciation of an Ojibwe word the Ojibwe used to describe their enemy. Mascots signify past tense of something or eras gone by. L/N/Dakota people are still here and get called Chineses, Samoan, or Hawaiian by the very people who want them to look like the stereotypical caricature envisioned by an ignorant eye of history and present day. Let it go already.
