The National Congress Of American Indians Releases Video Asking Redskins To Change Name

Earlier this week, the National Congress of American Indians released a powerful video called “Proud to Be” just in time for this Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The two-minute video shows simple images of American Indians living their everyday lives while a narrator shares the various names different tribes use to refer to themselves.

The YouTube post includes information on how to contact the Washington Redskins team and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
