'Redskin' nickname to continue for now at Union Public Schools

Updated:
There's still no decision on the future of Union High School's mascot.

Members of Tulsa's Native American community went before the Union School Board Monday night to ask the district to change its mascot. Parents and alumni both sounded off on the ‘redskin’ debate.

Some Native Americans say everything from the teepee to the headdress is offensive.

The Union School board did not take any action on the mascot issue. They say they'll review the matter than decide on the next step.
