Yesterday afternoon, I received a call from a PR firm informing me that six Native American students had filed a federal lawsuit over UND’s Fighting Sioux nickname. The woman on the phone told me the story (which you can read in the link below) was going to be coming out either Wednesday or Thursday and wondered if I’d be interested in writing about it. Because the Grand Forks Herald, which covers all things UND, is a sister newspaper to The Dickinson Press, I told her she should contact them.
Keep in mind while reading the story that a PR firm has been hired to help get this story out there (as if it was really necessary).
