Spirit Lake vote sought on 'Fighting Sioux' nick
Some members of the Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation are seeking a referendum on the use of the "Fighting Sioux" nickname and logo by the University of North Dakota.

Eunice Davidson is part of a group that is pushing for a vote on the issue. “I like the name. I like the college using the name," she told The Grand Forks Herald.

UND has agreed to eliminate the "Sioux" name if it can't gain tribal support. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has already rejected the idea but the Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation has not adopted a position since the agreement was adopted.
