STUDENTS UNLEASH ANGER ON KUPCHELLA, WHO SAYS NO LOGO CONDITIONS ARE TIED TO ENGELSTAD GIFT

UND President Charles Kupchella told Ralph Engelstad it was very unlikely that UND would consider re-adopting the Blackhawk Indian head logo after the Las Vegas hotel owner and UND benefactor indicated last summer that he'd like to see the logo reinstated.

Kupchella said he then suggested to Engelstad that if a more respectful and noble representation of the Sioux could be found, UND might consider adopting it to complement the school's existing geometric Indian head logo.
