Cleveland Indians Play Final Game with Grinning Native American Caricature “Chief Wahoo” Logo

On Monday night, the Cleveland Indians were swept away by the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series, bringing the team’s 2018 season to a close and with it an end to the franchise’s use of its pretty racist mascot, “Chief Wahoo.” The grinning caricature of a Native American wearing a single feather headdress has been in use, officially, for 71 years, although there are different claims made on when the inspiration for today’s scarlet red-faced depiction was first created. In January, the head-shaped logo was deemed inappropriate by Indians owner Paul Dolan and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, who announced the 2018 season would be the mascot’s last. At the time, Manfred deemed Wahoo “no longer appropriate for on-field use.”
