Pissed as hell about the misuse of indigenous imagery in the commercial sports game?

Donate to Sinte Gleska University, a higher education facility run by and for Lakhota values:* a facility actively working to detangle indigenous history from its colonialisation. That's like the exact opposite of what redface does.
