Email News Alerts

Standing Rock supporters of UND's Fighting Sioux nickname are beginning a campaign to get each of the eight tribal districts to approve the nickname, according to one of the organizers.

Recently, nickname supporters tried to get the council to put the nickname on a referendum, but failed.
