SOUNDBITE (English) Ray Halbritter, Representative of Oneida Indian Nation: "in our meeting today, we requested the opportunity for our nation to meet with the entire group of NFL owners during the week of Superbowl in February. Because the effects of the 'R' word are so acute, we requested that Commissioner Goodell and Washington's team owner visit our homeland so that the people in our community can have a conversation about the day to day effects of the Washington team name."AP - AP CLIENTS ONLY2.

Halbritter says the dictionary defines the word 'redskins' precisely like that.And Halbritter's group asked Goodell to 'use his power to force Snyder to the league executive committee for possible sanctions' should the team continue to use the name."We met at the request of Ray Halbritter of the Oneida Nation," the NFL said in a statement. "We listened and respectfully discussed the views of Mr. Halbritter, Oneida Nation Wolf Clan Representative Keller George and their colleagues as well as the sharply differing views of many other Native Americans and fans in general. The meeting was part of an ongoing dialogue to facilitate listening and learning, consistent with the commissioner's comments earlier this year.The Oneida Indian Nation, which has approximately 1,000 enrolled members, is one of 566 federally recognized sovereign Native American nations, according to the U.S. Department of the Interior/Indian Affairs.(****END****)
