Braves suggest they will ‘evaluate’ tomahawk chop after season

Larry Brown Sports

The Atlanta Braves are well known for their “tomahawk chop,” in which fans are given foam tomahawks and sing along to a distinctive warchant. That practice has also been criticized by people who feel it is disrespectful to Native Americans.

The latest criticism came from St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Ryan Helsley, whose mother is full-blooded Cherokee. Helsley said that the tomahawk chop “devalues” both Cherokee and Native American history.
