WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Representatives from the Oneida Indian Nation will meet with NFL officials to continue discussion about the name change for the Washington Redskins.
The Oneidas have led the charge for the team to change its name. They have launched an ad campaign, and made a trip to rally in Washington, D.C. in the beginning of October.
The ethics of the Redskins name has sparked a nationwide debate about whether it is appropriate for an NFL team to bear that mascot. However, the team's owner, Dan Snyder, has said he will not change the name.
Oneida Nation representative Ray Halbritter is expected to meet with NFL officials Wednesday afternoon.
