FILE - In this Oct. 2, 2017, file photo, a Kansas City Chiefs fan does the "tomahawk chop" during the second half of an NFL football game in Kansas City, Mo. While other sports teams using Native American nicknames and imagery have faced decades of protests and boycotts, the Chiefs have largely slid under the radar. Vincent Schilling, associate editor of Indian Country Today, said it's time for the Chiefs to face the music. "When I see something like a tomahawk chop, which is derived from television and film portrayals, I find it incredibly offensive because it is an absolutely horrible stereotype of what a native person is."
