Native Americans to protest Redskins at Lambeau Field

On Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that, if one person is offended by the Redskins name, the league must listen.
On Sunday, the league apparently will be listening.
Via Meg Jones of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, members of the Oneida Nation will assemble at the Oneida Nation Gate at Lambeau Field to express concerns regarding the Redskins name.
“The warrior image is not the image we want to be portrayed,” Brandon Stevens, an Oneida Nation elected official, told Jones. “We’ve moved past the time of Western encroachment and how the West was won, and that’s where all the images are taken from — when we were a valiant enemy.”
