GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- Workers have started removing Fighting Sioux imagery outside the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks.

The removal of the sign reading "Home of the Fighting Sioux" was required under a 2007 agreement to settle a lawsuit between North Dakota and the NCAA.

Arena spokesman Chris Semrau tells The Grand Forks Herald (http://bit.ly/X3X1oD ) that removing the sign will take most of the week. It will be replaced with a sign reading "Home of North Dakota Hockey" in November.

The sign is one of six "Home of the Fighting Sioux" signs that must be removed. An agreement between the state and the NCAA released the arena from having to remove most of the other Fighting Sioux logos and imagery.
