The Kansas City Chiefs announced they will not be changing their nickname, but they will be retiring their mascot, according to the organization president, Mark Donovan.
The Chiefs mascot was a horse named “Warpaint.”
The football team will be joining the Washington Football Team, formerly known as the Washington Redskins in fighting against discrimination.
On Monday, Donovan stated:
“We have a really good American Indian working group that provides us real guidance and feedback and perspective on this issue.”
He continued and said:
“We’re going to continue to create opportunities to educate, create awareness and work exactly as we have over the past eight years now with the working group.”
