NEW YORK (CNN) – The Oneida Indian Nation is calling on the National Football League to sanction the owners of the Washington Redskins for not changing the team's name.
Members of the group met with NFL officials in New York on Wednesday.
Many Native American's feel the term "Redskins" name is offensive.
"We requested that commissioner Goodell use his authority and power to refer to Washington team owner Dan Snyder and the league executive committee for possible sanctions should the Washington team continue to promote a dictionary defined slur that is clearly detrimental to the welfare of the NFL's image," said Ray Halbritter of the Oneida Indian Nation.
Neither NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell nor team owner Daniel Snyder was at the meeting.
The Oneida Indian Nation is requesting all NFL team owners to meet with Oneida leaders during Super Bowl week.
They also want an amendment to NFL bylaws prohibiting teams from using dictionary-defined racial slurs as team names.
Dan Snyder has repeatedly said he will never change the Redskins' name.
