One Oregon school is fighting to keep their Native American mascot name.

The State Board of Education voted in May, forcing all schools with a Native American Mascot to make the change.

However, the Roseburg School District board says they want to keep "the indians" as their team name.

The school board has voted to authorize legal counsel to challenge the ban.
