WHAT'S UNGAWA?

What does "ungawa" mean? Its origin is unknown, but historians have traced it back as a greeting aboriginals used in the American north-west. Though its history is vague, the word has grown in infamy due to the controversial "racial draft" seen in The Dave Chappelle Show. And that's what we as team wanted to be known as: A team without much history, coming together to make something amazing.
