Supporters of the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname in the Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation aren’t backing down, despite an earlier decision by the state that makes it difficult for the university to keep the nickname. Eunice Davidson, spokeswoman for the pro-nickname group, said members plan to meet with the newly elected Tribal Council next week to discuss a formal resolution supporting the nickname.
