There are Native American schools that call their teams Redskins. The term is used affectionately by some natives, similar to the way the N-word is used by some African-Americans. In the only recent poll to ask native people about the subject, 90 percent of respondents did not consider the term offensive
Hey but you can bet that if a reporter from the NY Times found one Indian on some remote reservation in Montana or Wyoming who objected to the "Redskins"
label, that reporter would make a big story and therefor a big issue about it.
