KUSA - The Oneida Indian Nation is behind a campaign to change Washington's mascot. Members of the tribe say "Redskins" is a racial slur and reflects poorly on the city of Washington, D.C.
The controversy reignited last May when the team owner Dan Snyder told USA Today that he will never change the name because he wants to preserve the team's heritage.
As the Washington Redskins head to Denver this week to face the Broncos, people plan to protest the mascot.
This issue will not go away anytime soon. Several other sports teams incorporate Native American culture into their franchises, including the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians.
