SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) A Native American tribe in South Dakota will return a $25,000 donation from a charitable arm of the NFL's Washington Redskins.
A check for that amount from the Washington Redskins' Original Americans Foundation was made out to the rodeo association of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe in South Dakota.
Tribal Council Vice Chairman Ryman LeBeau told The Associated Press that the council voted Wednesday to return the current donation and any future money from the organization.
Team owner Dan Snyder created the organization in March 2014 following calls for the team to change its name, which activists have long considered offensive. The team has maintained that the name honors Native Americans.
The motion also requires Tribal Chairman Harold Frazier to cease all ''unsanctioned communication'' with the team.
