Native America Calling

January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Today, January 25 – Is there any hope Kansas City will change its NFL team name?

Kansas City’s NFL team either goes to the Super Bowl or plays its final game of the year on Sunday. The team has weathered sustained pressure that has seen other sports teams, like the Cleveland Guardians and the Washington Commanders, change their names and mascots. Activist have gone so far as to publicly appeal to Taylor Swift, girlfriend of Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, to speak out against the controversial ‘tomahawk chop’ performed by fans. We’ll assess the wins and…lack of wins…in the ongoing awareness campaign for respectful names and mascots.

To join the discussion, call 1-800-996-2848
