Members of the Spirit Lake Sioux tribe say they’re proud of the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname and they showed it with their votes. State officials say the tribal vote is just one of the factors they must consider. Results from the tribe’s primary election, announced Wednesday by the tribal election committee, showed 764 votes in favor of UND’s nickname and Indian head logo and 371 against it.
