Major League Teams with Native American Names

There are six major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, CFL). Some of their teams will soon need a new name.
Guess team name, not the city or metro area that the team is based in.
Shaded fields indicate that the team has dropped their Native American name, but has not yet chosen a new name.

I don't like the fact that they changed the team names just because of pressure from the public, but they didn't do it earlier. We need those names back, those are teams of the past. And changing their names is clearly erasing them.

I believe that everyone should know their history, but history belongs in a museum. A statue honoring a Confederate general in a museum is a history lesson. A Confederate statue in the public square represents endorsement by the state, as though people should still be proud of having fought against America to preserve slavery. Moving something from a public square into a museum isn't erasing history (unless you're acknowledging that Americans don't read or go to museums).

Likewise, I expect to see Native American names in a sports almanac. When a team is still using one of these names, they're saying that it's still okay to do so. It doesn't matter if the name was chosen before people knew better; they know better now. If it wouldn't be an acceptable name for a team to start using, it isn't an appropriate name to still be using. There's no place for casual racism in sports. Put it in the museum where we can learn from it without endorsing it.

Incidentally, the Cleveland Indians were previously known as the Cleveland Naps, Broncos, Bluebirds, and Lake Shores. The Edmonton Eskimos used to be called the Edmonton Elk. We need those names back; those are teams of the past. And changing their names is clearly erasing them.

And slavery too - it's a thing of the past. Stop erasing slavery and bring it back. Right?
