GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Supporters of the University of North

Dakota's Fighting Sioux nickname plan a 10-block walk on Friday

night.

Organizer Danielle Sime isn't a student or an alumnus of UND but

says she is a lifelong fan of the Sioux sports teams.

The nickname and the school's Indian head logo are being retired

after a state Supreme Court ruling last week supported a Board of

Higher Education decision nearly a year ago.

Sime says the walk she plans will be a peaceful one. She says

that hundreds of people have clicked on a Facebook site saying they

will take part.
