Nine out of 10 Native Americans are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a Washington Post poll.

The poll interviewed 504 Native Americans. Some results include:
  • 90 percent polled said the Washington, D.C. football team using the name "Redskins" does not bother them.
  • 9 percent found its use offensive.
  • 1 percent had no opinion.
Most of those who took the poll do not feel the term "redskins" is disrespectful.
  • 73 percent do not find "redskins" disrespectful.
  • 21 percent believe it is disrespectful.
  • 6 percent had no opinion.
If a non-Native American called the poll takers "redskins," 80 percent said they would not be offended, 17 percent said they would, and 3 percent had no opinion.
The Washington Redskins' team owner, Dan Snyder, praised the poll, saying, "The Washington Redskins team, our fans, and community have always believed our name represents honor, respect, and pride."

"We are gratified by this overwhelming support from the Native American community, and the team will proudly carry the Redskins name," Snyder said in a statement.
