University of North Dakota Mascot “Fighting Sioux”

On Saturday night, I attended the CC vs. University of North Dakota hockey game at the World Arena. Whenever UND scored a goal, fans would stand up, chanting “Sioux!” Jerseys, worn by fans, displayed a picture of an Indian Chief.

Apparently, the University of North Dakota had to get rid of the “fighting” portion and must be represented as “mascot-less” in the NCAA finals.
