The Washington Redskins are defending their name.
A group funded by the NFL team released a new video, in which Native Americans explain why they don't think the name is offensive.
Some argue that there are bigger issues to deal with than a football team's name.
This video counters another video shown last year from the National Congress of American Indians, entitled "Proud to Be."
It's a voiceover message saying Native Americans call themselves many things, but not redskins.
