The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council went on record at the May 25th, 2016 council meeting and voted unanimously in favor of a motion that the Rosebud Sioux Tribe stands in opposition to the Washington National Football League (NFL) team using the name Redskins.
Furthermore, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe stands in opposition to any and all racist, derogatory, mascots and their likeness names, etc.., which are meant to dehumanize and belittle Native Americans.
The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will stand against racism and will not tolerate any team mascot claims under the guise that it is a means to honor Native Americans.”
