The National Congress of American Indians has released a powerful commercial aimed directly at the Redskins team name, just ahead of the Super Bowl.

The ad shows video and images of American Indians living everyday lives while the narrator lists the various names they use to refer to themselves, including teacher, doctor, Seminole and Sitting Bull. The ad concludes with the one name they do NOT use, and shows a Redskins team helmet.

The YouTube information urges viewers to contact the team, the NFL, Roger Goodell and the Washington Post to demand change.
