Outside the American Indian OIC along East Franklin Avenue, Dawn Bjoraker's teeth chatter in the harsh cold. It's early, the sun barely making its way over the skyscrapers surrounding her.
Perhaps Bjoraker's family would still be sleeping or curled up by a fireplace in these conditions, but not today. They're here for an important reason: to join together with brothers, sisters, and elders in a march and rally to let Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder know that the word "Redskins" is racist, no matter what he says. And he better change it. Soon.
"This has always been a big deal! It was a big deal when I was a kid. And now I'm 40, so you see?" Bjoraker explains. "But now, we're taking it back."
