Where's The Stanley Cup? Paying Tribute to Chicago's American Indians

 


UPTOWN — In one of its last stops before it returns to a permanent display case at the end of October, the Stanley Cup held court at the American Indian Center, 1630 W. Wilson Ave., Tuesday afternoon.

Despite a small group of protesters outside rallying against what they viewed as a racist team logo, dozens of hockey fans streamed through the city's flagship Native American cultural center to take pictures with the trophy.

Visitors were asked to give $10 donations to the center, and were invited to buy tickets for a raffle that included signed jerseys and memorobilia donated by the team.
