After years of refusing to replace the name Washington Redskins a change appears to be in the offing. Indeed, the Cleveland Indians have also said they aim to replace their team's name. All of this comes as the Black Lives Matter protests filled the streets in the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and a renewed effort to take down old Confederate monuments. Glenn Aparicio Parry is author of a new book entitled, "Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again" which looks at American democracy through the traditions of Native Americans. Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush talked with him about the name changes that has been resisted for so long.
