The Washington Redskins name controversy involved the name and logo previously used by the Washington Football Team, a National Football League (NFL) franchise located in the Washington metropolitan area. Native American groups had questioned the use of the 'Redskins' name and image since the 1960s and the topic began receiving widespread public attention in the 1990s. Native Americans demanding a name change included tribal nations, national tribal organizations, civil rights organizations, and individuals. The largest of these organizations, the National Congress of American Indians, counted the enrollment of its member tribes as totaling 1. 2 million individuals in 2013. The Washington team was only one example of the larger Native American mascot controversy, but it received more public attention because modern dictionaries define the name as derogatory or insulting and because the team is located in the nation's capital. After decades of resistance, in 2020 the team responded to economic pressure in wake of widespread recognition of systemic racism, dropping the Redskins name and beginning the process of rebranding the team. It has been decided that the new name will leave behind all references to Native Americans, and be announced in 2022. Support for continued use of the name 'Redskins' came from the team's owners, management, the NFL Commissioner, and a majority of fans, which include some Native Americans. Supporters said that the name honors the achievements and virtues of Native Americans, and that it was not intended in a negative manner. Some, such as former team president Bruce Allen, also pointed to the use of Redskins by three high school teams, two on reservations, that have a Native American student majority.
