Neepawa's Junior A Hockey team has unveiled its new name as they'll now be known as the Titans.  

The organization dropped the Natives nickname in 2020 after calls last summer for sports teams to stop the use of Indigenous names and caricatures.

The MJHL is expected to begin its season on Friday, September 17.
