Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation Went Nationwide For Feedback

In Dan Snyder’s letter announcing the creation of the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, the owner wrote  about his commitment to “listening and learning from all voices with a perspective about our Washington Redskins name.”

To accomplish that goal, Snyder and his staff launched a fact-finding mission that led them to 26 Native American reservations across 20 states.

They sought input from 400 Tribal leaders throughout Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.

The foundation currently has more than 40 projects in the works to address the challenges in the daily lives of Native Americans based on what those Tribal leaders have said they need most.

Gary Edwards, a Cherokee and retired Deputy Assistant Director of the United States Secret Service, is the Executive Director of the foundation. He is already leading the organization and speaking to the media about his work.

Edwards greeted Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen at the NFL owner’s meetings in Orlando before beginning a media tour with “Redskins Nation” host Larry Michael.
