The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council wants the NFL Washington Redskins to sack their team name.

According to a news release Thursday from the tribal president's office, the council unanimously voted last week to oppose the professional football team's controversial nickname. 

"The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will stand against racism and will not tolerate any team mascot claims under the guise that it is a means to honor Native Americans," the tribal statement says.
