Atlanta Braves and the Native American Community

The Atlanta Braves honor, respect, and value the Native American community. The culture and history of Native Americans have a monumental impact not just on the Atlanta Braves, but our state, region, and the entire country.

For almost 20 years, the Braves organization has built an active and supportive relationship with Native American leaders and communities. This relationship, in fact, has evolved into true partnerships, with ongoing and frequent interaction, dialogue, and meetings. These relationships have provided the Braves with the unmatched insight only our Native American partners can provide through active listening and learning.

Our organization and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI), Georgia Council on American Indian Concerns, and a formal Working Group of various nationwide leaders are collaborating on important Native American matters. As a result, the Braves have created an ongoing awareness and support campaign of Native Americans and their culture and history.

We are committed to:

  1. Teaching our fans on the enduring vibrancy, historical, contemporary relevance, and ongoing contribution of our Native American brothers and sisters.
  2. Using the power and voice of the Braves’ brand and resources, we are showcasing all aspects of the Native American culture to our fans, players, employees, and the general public.
  3. Building and activating programs and initiatives around baseball, softball and stickball.
  4. Supporting educational and professional opportunities for Native Americans.
