    I think it depends on the name. If it’s a name Native Americans find offensive for a reason that makes sense (like redskins is a derogatory term) than yes. I’m not sure what’s wrong with Kansas City Chiefs or the Blackhawks are a specific tribe. I actually never understood why they got rid of Chief Illiniwick because I did not understand what was objectionable. So if the name is considered offensive then it should be changed but I would like to understand the objection and just not have to be done without some real thought.
