A 60-second version of this advertisement, produced by the National Congress of American Indians, aired in seven cities during Tuesday's NBA Finals.
The video runs through words Native Americans actually use to identify themselves. A photo project of the same name is ongoing.
The background song, "The Battle", was actually written by Tim Cretella, a lifelong Redskins fan. Cretella did not write the song for the advertisement; he was informed of its use by his agent after the video was released.
"Proud To Be" was produced in January, but the pressure to change the team's name has only heated up since the end of football season.
Fifty US Senators wrote to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, asking to change the name; a hashtag meant to serve as a rebuttal to this letter failed miserably. A small survey found the majority of Natives to be offended by the name, refuting an oft-referenced survey from ten years ago.
