Fighting Irish connotes a fighting lineage. At times, fighting is a necessary and admirable response. The Irish are good hard-working people. Put it all together and you get The Fighting Irish, a nickname that will exist forever because we Irish understand what it stands for: integrity, honor and respect.
Manh nickname supporters have no real concept of complex Dakota/Lakota/Nakota culture, tribal life or governance, nor do they comprehend the profound challenges in many tribal communities across the Dakotas.
At one time, I felt that the logo was oppressive and should be dropped as a moral matter. But the vote on the Spirit Lake reservation repudiated that view.
Even so, considering the adversaries involved and the enduring nature of the controversy, loss of the logo became inevitable.
Oral tradition and oral history have spoken on the matter of the UND logo and nickname. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council voted, and the measure lost. Why? Because the overall issue was not central to the duties of the governing body at Standing Rock.
UND students now can concentrate on their classes and have fun at sports games without worrying about whether their sports nickname is being honored in the right way. Faculty and staff can get back to the business of educating students and solving all the pressing problems that involves. Administrators can promote the good things about the university and stop wasting time putting out bush fires started by the nickname.
UND has many fine managers, and another one is not what the university needs. We need a leader who can chart our future course while providing the vision that helps us jettison the comfort of the past in favor of a brighter future.
