(KOB) The ongoing controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins' name continues to grow. Many Native Americans say the NFL team's name is offensive. But, not everyone is offended by the NFL team's nickname. Some natives are actually embracing it.

On Monday Zuni Pueblo in western New Mexico had representatives from the Redskins visiting. Hoping pueblo artists could make some money off them. Some representatives were looking to buy items made by Native Americans-- with and without the team's logo on it.

"I think the Redskins organization has a head on their shoulders. I wish more NFL teams would think that way to go and help out more of the indigenous communities around the US," said Daryl Shack.

But not everyone was happy about the visitors from Washington.
