ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Oneida Indian officials who oppose the Redskins nickname as a slur are set to meet with NFL officials next week in New York City.
NFL officials had previously agreed to a meeting with the upstate New York tribe.
Oneida spokesman Brett Stagnitti told The Associated Press on Friday the meeting is scheduled for Wednesday.
The Oneida Indian Nation and its leader Ray Halbritter became prominent critics of the team's name after funding a radio ad campaign and a symposium in Washington on the harmful effects of the nickname.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy says senior league executives will attend, but he doesn't know if Commissioner Roger Goodell will be among them.
