College basketball uniforms to honor Native American Heritage Month

Special to Yahoo Sports
Basketball teams will wear turquoise Nike N7 uniforms to raise awareness for the need to bring access to sport to Native American and Aboriginal youth. The turquoise color is deeply symbolic of friendship and community in Native American culture, reflecting the support of four schools to elevate the power of sport both inside and outside Native communities.

Nike N7 is partnering with four universities—Florida State, Nevada, New Mexico and Oregon State—to bring Native American Heritage Month to life on the basketball court during November.

Teams from each participating school will make a departure from their traditional colors for one game, donning turquoise Nike N7 uniforms, to highlight the importance of bringing sport and physical activity to Native American and Aboriginal youth.
