Oneida Nation (WSYR-TV) – The Oneida Nation has issued a thank you to pro-football players who have come out to urge the Washington Redskins to consider changing their mascot – including Orange legend Art Monk.

Monk and fellow Washington great Darrell Green recently challenged the storied franchise to consider a new nickname.

"[If] Native Americans feel like Redskins or the Chiefs or [another] name is offensive to them, then who are we to say to them 'No, it's not'?" Monk told WTOP in Washington.

The Oneida Nation recently contributed to the Cooperstown scholastic athletics program when it switched its nickname from Redskins to Hawkeyes.
