Cleveland Indians team name, Chief Wahoo logo targeted in Canadian lawsuit | cleveland.com

An activist for indigenous cultures has asked an Ontario court to block the Cleveland Indians from using their team name and logo on uniforms in today’s playoff game in Toronto against the Blue Jays.

Douglas Cardinal, a Canadian architect who designed the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, is a member of the Blackfoot tribe. His request will be heard by the Superior Court of Justice in Toronto this afternoon.

Cardinal argues that the team name and mascot logo of Chief Wahoo are offensive and discriminatory. He seeks an injunction barring their use.
