    The University of Utah pays the Ute tribe a royalty for the use of their name as a mascot.
    The Utes are okay with it as long as it’s done in a respectful way and they aren’t depicted as demeaning, derogatory caricatures.

    Bri — I’ve wondered about that, cos so many tribes and Native American groups have protested and petitioned over team names.


    Good to know this one is sanctioned.


    Of course, I was scolding Dan over the pun, not the team name.

    (Like anybody takes me seriously if I complain about a pun.)

    I’ve also heard that the Seminole tribe doesn’t want Florida State to drop them as the mascot. I don’t know if it’s true; I don’t know any Seminoles.

    Wow, Bri… I think I need to Google that… interesting.


    Meanwhile… haven’t seen you at the Tiki for a while.

    Ok, it’s complicated…

    But if anyone is interested…
    there’s a whole Wikipedia article on the controversies vs. cooperation in the use of Native American symbols for sports teams….
