The purpose of the paper is to present opinions of Native Americans related to the name and graphic symbol of an American football team The Washington Redskins, which are registered as its trademarks. The issue constitutes a legal problem as the group of Native activists has twice tried to cancel those registrations on the grounds that they were obtained contrary to the provision which prohibits a registration of marks that may disparage persons. The controversy carries such accusations as racism, stereotype, discrimination and cultural appropriation. The author strives to determine whether American indigenous people perceive the team’s imagery coherently (as it is usually the case according to a static view of culture) or whether the issue is rather contested among them (which evokes a dynamic view of culture as a proper framework for analysis)
