University in Ohio ends Indian logo on merchandise

Oxford, Ohio (AP)

Miami University in Ohio will no longer allow its Indian-head logo to be used on merchandise sold on or off campus, university officials said last week.

Miami has told merchandising companies the logo will no longer be available for reproduction after the current supply of merchandise is sold.

University trustees voted in 1996 to stop using the name Redskins as its athletic nickname, citing respect for the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma. The school adopted the current RedHawks nickname in 1997, but allowed limited use of a logo incorporating an Indian head and the beveled letter “M” on some apparel and in some athletic areas as a “heritage mark” related to the school’s history.
