I can’t see how these players will win this suit. Would any of our lawyers like to comment?

Spokane Indians Change Jersey to Squalish Language

The partnership between Spokane Tribe of Indians and the Short Season Class A minor league baseball team called the Spokane Indians is coming up on its 10-year anniversary. It’s been a work in progress, but the foundation has been laid for a new era. In 2014, the baseball organization honored the original inhabitants of the land by changing the name across the front of their home uniforms to read Sp’q’n’i, the Salish word for Spokane, and made it its primary jersey, beginning with opening day in 2015.


Since this is not an all-Native team, like the Iroquois Nationals lacrosse team, it is a revolutionary idea that has both tribal members and baseball people excited with the response received after its first full season. “I believe we’re the only professional baseball team in the country that has home jerseys in a language other than English,” Andy Billig, co-owner of Brett Sports and Entertainment, told ICTMN. “The partnership with the Spokane Tribe is about honoring the history and culture of not only the Spokane Tribe, but the entire region.”
