A minor league team in Spokane, Wash., has steadfastly stood by its nickname with the support of the local Native American community.
The Washington N.F.L. team has long been a target of protests but now that its owner has budged, activists are pushing for other teams to follow suit.

It is not just the N.F.L.’s Washington team that could get a name change. A number of schools are also reconsidering nicknames, though some are resisting any switch.
