Many sports teams have names or mascots derived from peoples that are indigenous to the region where the team is also located. There is not total agreement on the definition of
indigenous peoples, but there are some criteria used by the United Nations and the International Labour Organization: [definition 1 ] [definition 2 ] People descended from the pre-colonial/pre-invasion inhabitants of a region. People that continue to have a distinct language or culture with close ties to the land. People who suffer economic and political marginalization as a minority group. People who identify themselves as indigenous.
This definition in international law is not identical to the American English dictionary definition of the word indigenous, which is broad enough to include
native and born as synonyms. The additional criteria of a people both colonized or invaded and reduced to a marginalized minority is however part of the current majority understanding of the terms [definition 3 ] First Nations, Native American and Indigenous peoples of the Americas as referring to the decedents of pre-colonial peoples of the Americas, not everyone born there. There are team names derived from non-indigenous peoples, such as the Boston Celtics, the University of Notre Dame "Fighting Irish" and the Minnesota Vikings (the latter name was selected in reference to the Scandinavian settlers of that region), none of which belong on this list. There is no doubt that the Irish and other ethnic groups in America were subject to marginalization, but not colonization. Colonization of the Celtic peoples in their native lands by the English did occur, but lies outside of the scope of this article.
While the history of colonization and marginalization is not unique to the Americas, the practice of deriving sports team names, imagery, and mascots from indigenous peoples is a significant phenomena in the United States and Canada. The rise of indigenous rights movements in these counties has also led to controversy regarding the continuation of practices rooted in
colonialism. Such practices maintain the power relationship between the dominant culture and the indigenous culture, and can be seen as a form of [definition 4 ] cultural imperialism. Such practices are seen as particularly harmful in schools and universities, which have the a stated purpose of promoting ethnic diversity and inclusion. [definition 5 ] In recognition of the responsibility of higher education to eliminate behaviors that creates a hostile environment for education, in 2005 the [definition 6 ] NCAA initiated a policy against "hostile and abusive" names and mascots that led to the change of many derived from Native American culture, with the exception of those that established an agreement with particular tribes for the use of their specific names. Other schools retain their names because they were founded for the education of Native Americans, and continue to have a significant number of indigenous students. In other former colonies in Asia, Africa and South America, the adoption of indigenous names for majority indigenous teams is also found.
The trend towards the elimination of indigenous names and mascots in local schools has been steady, with two thirds having been eliminated over the past 50 years according to the
National Congress of American Indians (NCAI). Change has often come though individual communities becoming aware of the issue, such as when the Cooperstown Central School Board of Education (NY) voted 6-1 on March 6, 2013 to remove the Redskins mascot, a move prompted by a vote of the student body. [trends 1 ] However other efforts have met official opposition, as at [trends 2 ] Neshaminy High School in Pennsylvania. [trends 3 ] [trends 4 ] In a few states with significant Native American populations, change has been mandated by law, such in [trends 5 ] Wisconsin, [trends 6 ] Oregon, and [trends 7 ] Washington. [trends 8 ] The list below for U.S. High Schools however remains substantial, with over 400 teams currently calling themselves "Indians", over 100 "Braves", 74 "Warriors" using indigenous imagery (there are many with the name but using generic, Greek or Roman mascots), and 57 "Redskins". The latter name has seen many changes due to its association with the [trends 9 ] Washington Redskins name controversy; 28 high schools in 18 states dropped the mascot between 1988 and early 2013. Several more have changed since that list was compiled in addition to Cooperstown, NY also in [trends 10 ] Driggs, Idaho, [trends 11 ] Dallas, Texas, [trends 12 ] Port Townsend, Washington. and [trends 13 ] Capitol Hill High School, Oklahoma City.

In 2005 the
National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) distributed a “self evaluation” to 31 colleges for teams to examine the use of potentially offensive imagery with their mascot choice. Subsequently 19 teams were cited as having potentially "hostile or abusive" names, mascots, or images, that would be banned from displaying them during post-season play, and prohibited from hosting tournaments. [trends 16 ] Since then, all of the colleges previously using the nickname [trends 17 ] Indians changed them except Catawba College which changed to Catawba Indians with approval of that tribe. Four additional colleges originally on the "hostile and abusive" list: [trends 18 ] Central Michigan University (Chippewas), [trends 19 ] Florida State University (Seminoles), [trends 20 ] Mississippi College (Choctaws) and [trends 21 ] University of Utah ( Utes) were granted waivers to retain their nicknames after gaining support from those respective tribes.
