  • American Indian imagery, ‘Three-in-One’ song discussed at faculty meeting

    Chief concerns
    Members of the Marching Illini perform at halftime during Homecoming festivities. At the Oct. 26 Urbana-Champaign Senate-sponsored annual meeting of the faculty, several faculty members spoke about issues surrounding Chief Illiniwek, the former university symbol, including the playing of the “Three-in-One” song at sporting events. The music was what the Chief traditionally danced to during halftime until his last official dance in 2007.
