Spirit Lake Nation set for vote on 'Fighting Sioux'
The Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation will vote on the "Fighting Sioux" nickname and logo of the University of North Dakota, a tribal member told The Grand Forks Herald.

Eunice Davidson said the issue will be on the tribe's primary ballot next month. She supports the nickname.

The tribe's current position neither supports nor opposes the name. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe opposes it.

UND promised to stop using "Fighting Sioux" by November 30, 2010, if it couldn't get approval from the two tribes.
