Native American Rights Group Planning Protest To Call For Kansas City Chiefs To Change Team Name Ahead Of Super Bowl LV

A Native American civil rights group is planning a protest on Sunday to pressure the Kansas City Chiefs to retire the team’s name and stop fans from using an in-game tomahawk chop ahead of Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida.

Alica Norris, co-founder of the Florida Indigenous Rights and Environmental Equality (FIREE), is one of the people leading the demonstration set to take place near Raymond James Stadium, where the Chiefs will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The pressure on the Chiefs comes on the heels of the Washington Football Team having to ditch the ‘Redskins’ nickname and logo. The Cleveland Indians announced they’re getting rid of their nickname and dropped their controversial Chief Wahoo logo.
