It's nearly a decade since the Kewaunee School District voluntarily dropped its long-time Native American team name following a complaint filed with the Department of Public Instruction. Since that time, district athletic teams have competed under the name Kewaunee Storm.
Rich Plass, a member of the Oneida Nation, has long called for amateur and pro teams to drop tribal nicknames and logos. He believes that such actions at the local level have finally been noticed by corporate America and prompted the Washington NFL franchise to change its' nickname.
Plass says, however, more Wisconsin school districts need to follow Kewaunee's lead. As of late 2019, 31 school systems still use Native American names and logos for sports teams.
