Nevada tribe returned gift from Original Americans Foundation

MSNBC: Reid calls for NFL team name change

A Nevada tribe refused to accept a gift from the Original Americans Foundation, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Senate majority leader, said on MSNBC today.

Reid said the foundation bought a vehicle for the unnamed tribe. But "to their credit," the tribe didn't accept the gift.

"Snyder -- like he does everywhere -- he tries to buy them off," Reid said of NFL owner team owner Dan Snyder.

Reid has repeatedly called on Snyder to eliminate his team's racist mascot.
