Tomahawk Chop on the Chopping Block Again

The “Tomahawk Chop” is once again the subject of criticism as the Kansas Chiefs prepare to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV Sunday in Tampa.

A coalition of Native American groups has put up billboards in Kansas City to protest the chop and the Chiefs’ name.

A few thousand people have signed one of two online petitions, including one started by a fourth grader.

The Tomahawk Chop is a popular tradition where fans break into a “war chant” while making a chopping hand motion to mimic the Native American tomahawk.
