Native American activists and their supporters will demonstrate against the "Chief Wahoo" mascot at the Cleveland Indians home opener on Friday.

Activists have been calling for the elimination of the mascot for decades. They are hoping that the national attention on the Washington football team will draw attention to their campaign.

"We can't settle for anything less than a name and logo change. The logo is racist and the name does not honor Native Americans," Ferne Clements, who works with the The Committee of 500 Years of Dignity and Resistance, told The Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

The schedule for Friday's event follows, from Native Americans in Cleveland:
