With an 8-6 vote the Standing Rock Tribal Council has decided not to allow a reservation wide vote to gauge tribal approval on the use of the Fighting Sioux Nickname and logo, despite a petition from some tribal members asking for one.
A Standing Rock tribal council member says the tribe's chairman told him they need to ask the State Board of Higher Education for more time on the Fighting Sioux nickname issue.
The deadline for the tribe to ask for more time to decide if they will hold a public vote on UND's use of the nickname is October 31st.
