North Dakota Fighting Sioux Ice Hockey
The University of North Dakota men's ice hockey team is the college ice hockey team at the Grand Forks campus of the University of North Dakota. They are members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) and compete in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I ice hockey. UND have appeared in the NCAA tournament 27 times and the Frozen Four 19 times, and won seven NCAA Division I Championships, 15 WCHA Regular Season Championships and 10 WCHA Tournament Championships. The current men's head coach is former UND player Dave Hakstol, who is in his eighth season with the team. During his tenure, the team has won two WCHA regular season championships and three WCHA Playoff Championships, and made five Frozen Four appearances. Until June 2012, UND used the "Fighting Sioux" as it's nickname, but dropped the nickname under pressure from the NCAA (see University of North Dakota athletics for a thorough discussion). No nickname will be chosen for three years. Most students and alumni still use "Fighting Sioux."

“I felt that he, a prisoner in the midst of his enemies and under the sentence of death, if consulted as to his next step or resource, could answer more wisely than all his countrymen beside. He best understood his position; he contemplated it most calmly. Comparatively, all other men, North and South, were beside themselves.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Im not fighting any causes. Im black, everybody can see that, but I am a storyteller for the masses.”
