Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Another group is touring the area over the Fighting Sioux nickname. The Committee for Understanding and Respect and Fighting Sioux Ballot Measures Committee made stops in Fargo today on their Save the Sioux Truth Tour.

Members with the group are trying to get 30,000 signatures for the Initiated Measure Petition. They're talking with people to dispel myths and exaggerations surrounding the issue, and hopefully encourage people to vote no on measure 4.

Eunice Davison – Spirit Lake Nation: “It is our tribal name. It has been there for 80 years. We have never experienced anything out of it, except for this is what’s going on right now, I call it discrimination.”

The group will also be out Friday in the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings on 19th Avenue North from noon until 6.
