Native American Working Group

With direction from members of the Native American community, the Braves established a formal working group consisting of national Native American leaders. This group provides guidance and leadership with a national perspective on matters of importance to the Native American community.

National Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day

The Atlanta Braves respectfully recognize National Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day on May 5, 2023. Tragically, more than four in five American Indian and Alaska Native women (84.3 percent) have experienced violence in their lifetime. The murder rate is ten times higher than the national average for women living on reservations and is the third leading cause of death for Native American women.*

Native American Education

Additional efforts to expand Native American education have included working with Jim Langford, president and founder of the Coosawattee Foundation for both internal and external educational programs to introduce Georgia Native American history curriculum to school systems in the state of Georgia, primarily to 8th graders. Jim has also led internal discussions with Braves staff about the history of Native Americans in our state.
