WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Oneida Indian Nation on Monday blasted Donald Trump after the GOP presidential candidate said he knows Indians who are proud of the Washington Redskins football team name, and he sees no reason to change it.
Trump told the New York Times that the controversy over the use of Redskins was a case of unnecessary political correctness.
"Honestly, I don't think they should change the name, unless the owner wanted to," Trump said. He added, "I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name. They think it's a positive."

I absolutely LOVE fall! It must love me too because it keeps sending these beautiful days and soft breezes. I have a lot of things to tell you about making the most of fall foods. The first is buy lots of winter squash when and where you see it. Prices are low now and you can count on butternut and acorn squash to have a long shelf life, other winter varieties as well.
It is also time to be “nutty!” I picked a lot of chestnuts off the ground last year from our trees because they can be cooked in the microwave. In the past I would pick them and give a lot away to friends in their raw, unroasted state. A lot of people like them in that condition to roast or use in their own recipes, so I still gift a lot of them.
Indian Country Today Media Network recently sat down with Chase Iron Eyes, community activist and attorney from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, to talk about an initiative from the Romero Institute focused on revoking the Doctrine of Discovery. Iron Eyes is widely known for his work on the Lakota People’s Law Project and Last Real Indians.
Sheena Roetman: The Romero Institute is currently circulating a petition to press Pope Francis to revoke the doctrine of discovery, specifically the Inter Caetera Papal Bull of 1493. Can you briefly explain what the Doctrine of Discovery is and what that particular bull proclaims?
Instant horse racing machines, which closely resemble slot machines, are now officially illegal in Idaho following a ruling by the Idaho Supreme Court.
This case began over two years ago when horse racing advocates introduced the concept of using machines to promote racing. The machines they introduced were accepted by the legislature but when they were installed, they were different than those shown to the legislature, and looked like slots.

The 25-year-old from the Blood Tribe impressed Stampede judges with her "incredible poise and beautiful Jingle Dress dancing," the Stampede said in a release.

Some residents of an apartment building on 118th Avenue are angry about a racist sign that was posted on the building's front door.
Chidi Nwofor has lived for the past five years in an apartment building at the corner of 118th Avenue and 37th Street.
Over the weekend, a sign was taped on the front door that asks residents to make sure the door closes properly behind them.
The sign tells aboriginal people to f--- off and warns "savages beware … we're watching you."
"I just looked at it, read it, and the first thing was, I'll just go and take this down, this is ridiculous," Nwofor said.
"I just think it's very insensitive to try and put something up like that, no matter if you do have a problem with somebody in the building. That's not the way to deal with it."
Nwofor said he plans to follow the matter up with building management.
The building's manager declined an interview with CBC, saying they're looking into the matter.
The city's dumping of eight billion litres of wastewater from Oct. 18 to 25, pending Environment Canada approval, would be done through 26 sewer mains, with the raw sewage released into the St. Lawrence River along the island of Montreal.
The interceptors, which correspond to areas used for sewer overflow during heavy rain, would be used to release the sewage into the river, according to the plans for Montreal's main sewer system, obtained by Radio-Canada.
