One FSU instructor is hoping to change that by teaching a course on the history of Seminoles for undergrad students.
Chris Versen, an instructor at FSU, said this course is a great chance to investigate the meaning of the symbol.
One student is looking forward to learning the history and identity behind the tomahawk.
"Where the term Seminoles came from and where the Seminoles are and why they actually support FSU's use of the term Seminole of their games," said Andrew Farar.
Versen said the course is not all books and papers. He is going to arrange for members of the Seminole tribe to come in and talk to the class.
