The Committee of 500 Years of Dignity and Resistance is a Cleveland-based organization of Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals and organizations committed to enhancing and protecting the cultural human rights and heritage rights of Indigenous Peoples, especially those in Northeast Ohio. The Committee shall provide financial and technical assistance, advocacy and other supportive activities on behalf of the Indigenous community of Northeast Ohio. Through media events and various public forums, the Committee will educate the public about individual and institutional racism against Indigenous peoples, and stereotyping in sports and the media against the Indigenous Peoples of this continent. Our goal is to remove the racist name (“Indians”) and logo (“Chief Wahoo”) of Cleveland’s professional baseball team.
