If you want to know how the Indians got their name. Nothing for anyone to be proud of.
A group of sportswriters picked it because it made for great banter and easy word play. Loosely modeled after the Braves.

They aren't named after the first Indian player that's just a story...kind of. I get why it it offends some people.
What I don't understand is why it bothers some of you guys so much? It's just a name after all.
