Great Lakes tribes oppose 'Chieftains' logo

The Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council passed a resolution calling for the removal of the Chieftains nickname and Indian head logo of a school in Wisconsin.

The Osseo-Fairchild School District has been using a logo styled after a Plains Indian. In March, the school board voted to model it after a Ho-Chunk Indian.

Despite the change, the Great Lakes council voted 10-0 to oppose the nickname and logo.
