North Dakota just went through several years of war over the UND Fighting Sioux. The NCAA were going to sanction them if they didn't drop the name and logo. The State of North Dakota were passing laws to force UND to keep the name. The millionaire who donated the money to build a stadium for them filled with symbols of the Fighting Sioux even said that he would stop funding the school.
Finally, somebody made a decision to give it up and just play some damn football and stop wasting tax dollars on fighting the inevitable.
Personally, I just looked at it as a name of a sports team, not a symbol implying that native americans were blood-thirsty warriors.
