There are plenty of people who are hoping that the Washington Commanders will make the decision to return to their former moniker of the Redskins after the sale of the team from Dan Snyder to the Josh Harris group.

However, it wasn’t long ago that the team shut down any possibility of returning to the former moniker. And to that end, the team is now being sued by a Native American group who wants the return of the Redskins name and logo.

The Native American Guardians Association has filed suit against the Commanders and owner Josh Harris of defamation, civil conspiracy and civil rights violations for their role in suppressing Native American history.

”Commanders is a fitting name for oppressors," the suit stated.

Additionally, the complaint reads:

”The name ‘Redskins’ carries deep cultural, historical, and emotional significance, honoring the bravery, resilience, and warrior spirit associated with Native American culture.”

It also argues that the Redskins were “the only team in the National Football League (NFL) to honor an actual Native American."

“NCAI is on a mission to eradicate Native American history. The more teams that ignorantly bend, the more power NCAI retains," the complaint states.

"The powerful few, do not get to have a monopoly on the narrative. They cannot eradicate Native American history from the hearts and minds of Americans."

Stay tuned for further developments!
