The origin of Chief Illiniwek dates to 1926, when Ray Dvorak, assistant director of bands at the University of Illinois, conceived the idea of having a Native American war dance performed during halftime of Illinois football games. The first performance occurred on October 30, 1926 at Memorial Stadium during the halftime of a game against the University of Pennsylvania. Chief Illiniwek was the symbol of the University of Illinois, from October 30, 1926 to February 21, 2007. Chief Illiniwek was portrayed by a student to represent the Illiniwek, the state's namesake, although the regalia worn was from the Sioux. The University of Illinois retired Chief Illiniwek in 2007, with his last official performance on February 21, 2007, at the last men's home basketball game of the regular season against Michigan, in Assembly Hall.
