GRAND FORKS - Supporters of UND's Fighting Sioux nickname in the Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation aren't backing down, in spite of an earlier decision by the state that makes it extremely difficult for the university to keep the nickname.


Eunice Davidson, spokeswoman for the pro-nickname group, said members plan to meet with the newly elected Tribal Council next week to talk about a formal resolution supporting the nickname.
