Fighting Sioux Logo
Since the early 1930s, the University of North Dakota athletic teams have been known as the Fighting Sioux and have used an American Indian head representation as their symbol. UND officially adopted the name "Fighting Sioux" in honor of the first inhabitants of the region and some of the American Indian tribes of the state. Please note that the University's athletic logo, the Indian head symbol, is intended for inclusion on merchandise or in specific reference to UND athletics. The athletic logo is not to be used by UND departments for general public information and marketing purposes; instead, the official UND logo or seal are to be used. Commercial use of any of UND's registered trademarks, including the athletic symbol, requires advance approval and generally involves the payment of royalties to UND.
In 2000, the State Board of Higher Education reaffirmed the use of the "Fighting Sioux" as the
nickname for UND's athletic teams. In 2011, the Board directed that a transition plan to retire the logo should be prepared by the University, pending possible action by the North Dakota Legislature regarding the status of the logo. UND insists that the team name be used in a completely respectful fashion both on and off campus. UND ranks among the top higher education institutions in the nation in the number of American Indians in its student population, the variety and substance of its Native American programs, and the number and success of its American Indian alumni. For example, more than 20 percent of the American Indian doctors practicing in the United States today were trained through UND's Indians into Medicine (INMED) program. UND has also developed programs to help train American Indians for such professional careers as nursing, psychology, journalism, and the sciences.
The University of North Dakota is firmly committed to promoting an environment that emphasizes respect for diversity. In accordance with this commitment, the UND community is dedicated to respecting the past and present of the American Indian. Further information is available from the Native American Programs Office, the Vice President for Student Affairs, or the Office of University Relations.
