Opening Day for the Cleveland Indians baseball team brings with it an annual reminder of Cleveland's true Native American population. For the last several years, a group of local Native American activists has picketed the first few games of the season. They're protesting the use of the Chief Wahoo logo, which they say depicts Native Americans in a racist way. But apart from that protest, few Clevelanders ever come in contact with the city's indigenous people. And even fewer know the long history of Native Americans in Northeast Ohio. 90.3 WCPN's Karen Schaefer brings us this portrait of the real Cleveland Indians.
