The Washington Redskins: “I think it’s very derogatory; native people are not red”

Joining our discussion - Linda Tyon, a Tama resident of the Meskwaki tribe, and Steve Baird, a native Iowan whose work on the case led to the cancelation of the Redskins' trademarks.

“I think it’s very derogatory; native people are not red,” says Linda Tyon.
