Howdy my name is Mike J. Saunnders. Currently i am an Alumnus at North Dakota State University. I am very opinionated on the issue at hand, I feel that the Fighting Sioux is offensive in ways not seen in a society before. I feel that there is an "atmospheric harassment" against the native students. Presently there are 30 programs directed for the native students in our university alone, but this is not enough to mend the damage done and currently in progress. The level of protest in the past couple of years has made it evident that the Native American community is offensive and the actions taken by the University completely disregard these opinions and views. I feel not only that the name should change, but it should change now.
