Natives Fight Back: Siouxper SOBER

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown May 19th, 2014 Last Updated on: May 19th, 2014

In case you missed it last week, University of North Dakota (UND) students came under fire for creating some ignorant party t-shirts that proclaimed they were “Siouxper Drunk”. The t-shirts show a version of the old UND mascot (Fighting Sioux) with a beer bong in his mouth. This led to outrage, protests and heated arguments on social media.




As they say, fight fire with fire. Natives have made response t-shirts that say “Siouxper Sober”. That's one way to take a negative and turn it into a positive!


If you want to order a t-shirt follow the link for Pow Wow Jamz. And if you want to, there's also a new group you can join on Facebook called #SiouxperSOBER Natives.

Original shirt is very funny. Response is lame.

UND students that initiated this blasphemy; need to apologize publicly. Thank you for the counterattack of their hate crime, that’s what is a hate crime.
