    Chief Illiniwek was the mascot and the official symbol of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 1926 to February 21, 2007. The mascot was portrayed by a student dressed in Sioux regalia to represent the Illiniwek, the state's namesake. After nearly 20 years of arguments that Chief Illiniwek perpetuated stereotypes about American Indian peoples, Chief Illiniwek was banned and made a final official appearance was at an Illinois Fighting Illini men's basketball game on Feb. 21, 2007.
