Official Response from North Dakota

Below is North Dakota Governor John Hoeven’s (Dartmouth ’79) official response to Josie Harper’s astounding apology for the University of North Dakota’s participation in next month’s hockey tournament.

“Unfortunately, Ms. Harper takes her position with no knowledge of how the University of North Dakota has approached the logo issue. UND has handled the matter with consideration and respect for Native Americans, and the university is a leader in Native American Programs.”
