Meanings of RedSkin

The name “Redskins” is currently also used for a NFL football team. The team was founded in 1932 and was originally known as the Boston Braves, for their landlords, the baseball team called the Boston Braves.

In 1933 the name was changed to the synonymous “Boston Redskins” when they left Braves Field for Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox.

Some accounts state that the name “Redskins” was chosen to honor the team’s coach, William “Lone Star” Dietz, who began coaching in 1933, and whose mother was allegedly Sioux.

In 1937 the team moved to Washington, D.C. and became the Washington Redskins, joining Capitol Hill as the second football team of Washington, D.C
