The National Congress of American Indians, which counts every federally recognized tribe among its voting membership, has released a video featuring seven elected tribal leaders, two of them national officials, speaking out against Washington's use of "Redskins" as a team name, according to DeadSpin.com.



Franchise owner Daniel Snyder and his supporters has said the term honors American Indians and is a beloved part of Washington culture.

Indian activists and their supporters say the term is derogatory and demeaning.
