|With Ray Halbritter, the federally-recognized representative of the Oneida Nation of New
York in the spotlight for the tribe's Change the Mascot campaign, a conservative publication questions his leadership:
Ray Halbritter is suddenly everywhere, giving interviews denouncing the Washington based team, even though his own base is in New York. He’ll even meet with the NFL to begin the process of pressuring the Redskins into changing their name.
Media accounts dub Ray Halbritter a representative for the Oneida Indian Nation. The reality is a good deal more complex.
So yes, Ray Halbritter is a representative of the Oneida Indian Nation. But it’s the Oneida Indian Nation Inc. It’s a company with gas stations, a hotel and a casino.
How legitimate is Ray Halbritter’s leadership considering that he basically stepped into a leadership vacuum and cashed in on legal gambling?
