The name of the Kansas City Chiefs is not a reference to American Indian tribal leaders; it is instead a reference to Kansas City’s popular mayor Harry ‘Chief’ Bartle. In 1962, then Mayor Bartle was able to secure an American Football team for Kansas City. In 1962 it was a major achievement for a city the size of Kansas City to have a football franchise. It was in his honor that the new team adopted his nickname as their team name. That being said, the team does use an arrow head design as their logo. I find that inconsistent with the history of the team’s name. I certainly could understand how an American Indian viewing their logo could interpret it as racist.
