On Saturday, May 3, 2014, EONM and other supporters of the #DeChief cause are taking to Twitter to call for the end of gear and clothing featuring the racist red-faced mascot known as “Chief Wahoo” of the Cleveland Indians.

EONM, which stands for Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry, explains their mission on their Facebook page:

Informing individuals and mobilizing groups to combat the public misappropriation of Native American imagery, and calling out entities complacent with, as well as ones directly profiting from, blatant racism. We do this by educating ourselves and others on history, current events, public relations, and social media tactics.

Below are a few examples of tweets being sent out during the #DeChief twitterstorm. Please feel free to join in to make our voices known. It’s time for the end of offensive Native mascots.
