Haskell basketball to wear special uniforms as part of Native American Heritage Month

Haskell men's and women's basketball teams will wear these Nike N7 uniforms on Nov. 28, 2016 to honor Native American Heritage Month.

For the second straight season, the Haskell Indian Nations basketball team will help highlight the Nike N7’s initiative as a part of Native American Heritage Month.

Out of the nine schools that will be wearing the N7 uniforms in a select game this season, Haskell is the only all-native university. Haskell will don the special uniforms on Nov. 28, when the women’s squad takes on Ottawa and the men’s team plays the University of St. Mary at the Coffin Complex.

Florida State, Gonzaga, Nevada, New Mexico, Marquette, Oklahoma State, San Diego State and Stanford are the other eight schools participating in Nike N7’s initiative.

According to a press release on news.nike.com, the goal on N7 is “to inspire and enable two million Native American and Aboriginal youth in North America to participate in sport and physical activity.”
