Report: Atlanta Braves discussing elimination of ‘Tomahawk Chop’

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Atlanta Braves are keeping their team name but the ‘Tomahawk Chop’ is on the, well, chopping block.

From The Athletic:

The Braves do not intend to change their name, though discussions about the team’s use of the “Tomahawk Chop” are ongoing, sources said.

“The Atlanta Braves honor, support and value the Native American community. That will never change,” the team said in a statement released to media outlets over the weekend.

The Braves added they have held meetings with their Native American Working Group, which will collaborate with the team on “cultural issues, education and community outreach to amplify their voices and show our fans they are still proudly here.”

The statement concluded, “We have much work to do on and off the field, but the Atlanta Braves are ready to meet the challenge of these times.”

Nation, should the Braves outlaw the Tomahawk Chop?
