Kandice, a representative of the Oneida Indian Nation, will present the views of the Oneida Indian Nation and examine the controversy regarding the Washington professional football team name and mascot. 

Kandice will discuss the strategy being used by the Oneida Indian Nation to bring the issue into public discourse and the strategy used to influence the views and decision making of Dan Snyder (owner of the Washington professional football team) and Roger Goodell (NFL Commissioner).
