Nokahoma Teepee Removed

The Atlanta Braves management ordered the removal of Chief Nokahoma’s teepee, which was then located on a platform in the field seats. The Braves were on a winning streak, and team officials wanted to free up the seats blocked by the large platform that supported the teepee. After the teepee came down, the Braves lost 19 out of the next 21 games. Officials then directed that Nokahoma’s teepee be erected again, and the Braves went on to win the division.
