Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Gives His MVP Trophy to a Nearby Native American Tribe

“If this will lift the curse from constructing Arrowhead Stadium on an Indian burial ground, then we’re willing to let it slide.” – Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes handed his MVP Trophy over to the nearby Kickapoo Native American Tribe today as a “sign of respect for local Native Americans.”

“As long as our team name, logo, and mascot continue to bring in hundreds of millions of dollars through branding which is nothing short of cultural appropriation, I can’t truly be proud of my team.”

Mahomes says he is also donating one dollar for every ‘tomahawk chop,’ man wearing a headdress, and shitty facepaint job that he saw this year to the Kickapoo tribe; a group of people whose land used to include the same space where Arrowhead Stadium is today. The quarterback figures that amount to be just over one million dollars.

In response, Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt made a statement expressing disappointment in Mahomes decision.

“The NFL is all about masculinity; there is no room for deep thinking. Having said that, if this will permanently lift the curse from constructing Arrowhead Stadium on an Indian burial ground, then we’re willing to let it slide.”

  1. What he did was from his heart as a person of color he knew their struggle I’m Chippewa so i know. What Hunt said was typical from a Christian he is blind to what’s right n wrong!!!!!

  2. Thank you Patrick. Your a good mzn. I am a Kickapoo of Kansas. I’m a Chiefs fan. always have been. I wish you continued success and good health. Cant wait till next season.

  4. Thank you Patrick for respecting my brothers and sisters from the Kickapoo tribe. You are a deep thinker and I hope that your career continues for many years and continues with greater success. Unfortunately Hunt has much to learn about being a “deep” thinker, and hopefully will take his lead from you, Sir.

  5. Cool like Brando giving up his oscar due to treatment of native American people

    1. Salt to the wound wearing ,headdress? A other insult,burial ground? Wow really?

    2. May the Lord Jesus bless you QB Mr. Patrick Mahomes.
      I am almost a full blood Native Crow Indian woman from Wyola, Mt on the Crow reservation.
      God uses people such as yourself to speak for those of us who can not speak or ignored.
      On our Reservation, they are stealing our young teenage girls and boys. Never to be found again. If found, they are dead.
      Due to Sex Trafficking.
      I pray someone of influence will help us catch the ones doing this and make it stop.

  6. My new Favorite Man #PatrickMahomes #Chiefs
    I’m a full blooded Diné (Navajo) Woman from New Mexico, I don’t watch Football, but I was eager to watch this Game. I’m super stoked that Chiefs took it!! ❤️

    1. 😡Remove Arrow Head Stadium From A Traditional Burial Site, The Only Humane Thing To Do,

    2. Patrick, you make your fans proud with your actions. Don’t let anyone tell you different.

    3. Awesome, Choctaw native here from Texas. Mahomes is respectful. Owner is not.

  7. Way to go Patrick. Awesome game. Great read on the option. Great read into our tribal history. Million aahoskiz for the donation of your trophy and covering expenses for the Kickapoo citizens.

  8. Mr. Mahomes is truly good hearted for his heartfelt gift to the Kickapoo Nation!! He was truly decisional prepared on his win to offer this treasurable gift and financial donation as it shocked others on his prepared choice!! This whole Mother Earth is Sacred Ground!! We don’t wear face paint to be recognized as a Native. But thank those support who fauxly do!! Much eternal respect for helping our Kickapoo Brothers & Sisters!! Congratulations to Mr. Mahomes, All KC Chiefs & Fans for winning Super Bowl “52”!! 02.02.2020 will not be forgotten as history has been made!!

    1. I would like to expand hand to Patrick Mahomes for his heart felt generosity to the little boy nd for the Kickapoo tribe this is unheard of for a professional athlete to recognize indigenous people that alone should be written down in the history books hiy hiy to you Patrick Mahomes

    2. It was SuperBowl 54. Congrats KC and we’ll done Patrick Mahoney.

    1. This is making the rounds as real news. Be ready for some backlash Grandma.

    2. I Am not sure what Clark Hunt is disagreeing about……Everything in this country in built on Native America land #WeWereHereFirst #LakotaSioux

  9. Wow! I’m a Vikings fan but was rooting for your team last nite in the super bowl. My brother would not because of the tomohawk chop and the shitty face paint. Wait till he sees this. Proud of this young man! Wishing you a long great career in the NFL. Pidamayaye! Thank you!

  10. as a tribally enrolled member of the Gros Ventre tribe still living on a Indian reservation in Montana, I would like to personally thank Patrick Mahomes for his thoughts and considerations. also thanks for a great game, our brother has always been a Chief’s fan, you can now add another, again thanks….

    1. Dont see alot of Gros Ventre here in Oklahoma…COLD up there?

  11. “The NFL is all about masculinity; there is no room for deep thinking. Having said that, if this will permanently lift the curse from constructing Arrowhead Stadium on an Indian burial ground, then we’re willing to let it slide.” I think Hunt just cursed his team. One should seriously think about keeping him on. I see him being replaced after the next season.

    1. I wonder if Hitler said there is no room for deep thinking before he slaughtered all the Jews!

      1. I wonder if Hitler objected to anyone doing ‘critical thinking.’

    2. No one should ever build anything on a NATIVE AMERICAN (not Indian, we are not from India) burial ground period!

  12. The comments by Hunt are the rhetoric of the white privileged class and spoiled brats. He probably doesn’t have a clue into the racist history and origins of the franchise. Mahomes is doing a stand up thing that needs to replicated in the other racist based teams such as San Francisco and Washington.

  13. i·ro·ny

    /ˈīrənē/

    noun

    the expression of one’s meaning by using language that normally signifies the exact opposite of what is stated, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.

  14. Patrick Mahomes; an awesome athlete, a great role model, a Gallant Warrior, but above all, a True Human Being. I state this as a full blooded Native American…

  15. I’m glad that at least one of the star players aknowledged our Native people and the flaws that lie with this team’s name and their representations that come with the fans. Its a step but at least its something. #Respect

  16. I’m am so touched by his sentiment and his support of Native American issues such as cultural appropriation. However, the owners statement is juvenile and depicts why boys like him shouldn’t have any power whatsoever. But they’re the loudest, soooo here we are.
    Thanks, Mahomes!!

  17. I couldnt support them because of the hideous ugliness of the face paint etc. What a decent human being.

  18. Thank my heart hurt as I listened to the chanting this lifts my heart to hear someone hears more than pretense

  19. Thank you Mr. Mahomes for you kind generous donation. The trophy is going to remind the Kickapoo tribe for your heartfelt thoughts of all the history. That is important. The money donation, an idea is to use it to help indigeneous athletics for equipment, uniform . Travel expenses, anything that helps them.
    God bless you.
    Great job!
    Congratulations! Go Chiefs!

  20. Guess your building a new stadium to hold native Americans in it!! Good Job on your generosity Patrick Mahomes you brought good things to your team. Way to think of the indigenous people of this land.

    1. So Homes shouldn’t do anything but run plays & run routes Mr Hunt? No room 4 deep thinkers? I think it’s great that Homes acknowledges the plight of Native American ppl. And made a statement against something that he sees as wrong.

      1. So obviously Mr. Hunt is not a deep thinker. All he worries about is money and status. I applaud the young man Patrick for his actions. It goes to show you that he is not greedy or self centered like most. His parents raised a great man!

Trump to Reinstate 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' to Prevent a Buttigieg Presidency

President Trump announced today that he will be reinstating “Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT), which was the official United States policy on military service by gays, bisexuals, and lesbians up until 2011. President Trump says the law will bar openly gay people like Pete Buttigieg from being Commander in Chief of the US military. “It doesn’t matter what role you are in the military,” Trump stated. “private, corporal, top, bottom, sergeant, twink, or bear; if you’re out, you’re out! That means you Mayor Pete!” Advertisements
