GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- A group of American Indian educators is using Sunday's Packers-Redskins game as a teaching opportunity.
Friday, the Wisconsin Indian Education Association held a forum it called "Operation Respect" at UW-Green Bay.
Participants talked about stereotyping and misinformation portrayed by mascots and logos
They say "redskin" is a hurtful word because of its origin.
The association plans to hold a protest outside Lambeau Field on Sunday.
This comes as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says team and league officials need to be listening to the calls for change.
It's a shift in position for Goodell, who supported the Redskins nickname earlier this year.
