Dear Illinois Confederation of Native Americans…

Dear Illinois Confederation of Native Americans,

Our apologies for the use of “Chief Illiniwek” as the Illini mascot.  We did not mean to offend, encourage Native American stereotypes, or generalize Native American culture in any way.  Enclosed is a peace pipe, along with some of our finest beads.  We hope you will accept these gifts as tokens of our good will.

How,
University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana
