Excellent post. Not so much because it supports FSU and the current situation, but because it comes from a true Seminole. If we listen to the NCAA and some of the other native americans's comments, we'd think that very few native americans are ok with such uses. Those of us that are not of that heritage can't possibly know how it feels or if its offensive so for someone to enlighten us like that is very helpful.
I also suggest you send this to the NCAA.

Emily, If the Tribe would be willing to sell the authentic Seminole shirts, jackets, and caps at or near Doak Campbell on game days this fall, i would bet that they would sell out of merchandise. Seminole Boosters authorizes sales at the athletic venues, but i could think of nothing better than to have our fans wearing real Seminole gear>
