LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Haskell Indian Nations University men’s and women’s basketball teams will wear special turquoise uniforms honoring Native Americans this month.

The Lawrence Journal World reports (https://bit.ly/1WCmxCN ) that Haskell is one of eight universities nationwide chosen to wear Nike’s new “N7” uniforms during November, Native American Heritage Month. The jerseys and shorts are turquoise and have an accompanying white T-shirt with a graphic blue and black image of a Native American warrior.

Nike said Wednesday that Haskell Indian Nations University men’s and women’s basketball teams will wear the uniforms on Nov. 24 during their games against Baker University at Haskell.

N7 is a Nike initiative to encourage Native American youth to participate in sports.
