The Kansas City Chiefs NFL team will prohibit the wearing of Native American headdresses, face paint and clothing at Arrowhead Stadium. 

Team officials are also discussing the future of the team’s long-used “Tomahawk Chop” gimmic as they address what many consider racist imagery associated with their franchise. Thursday's announcement comes on the heels of the NFL team in Washington choosing to drop Redskins as its nickname after a long and often contentious dialogue with fans and the public.
