Chiefs Introduce LoneBear/H.Roe Bartle Rotational Internship

The Kansas City Chiefs are proud to introduce the LoneBear/H. Roe Bartle Rotational Internship. This internship initiative will provide a candidate of American Indian heritage the opportunity to work with, learn from, and offer input for various departments throughout the Chiefs organization and is the latest example of the club's continued efforts to engage with the American Indian community while using the club's platform to celebrate American Indian heritage.

The newly created position is named in recognition of the special relationship between Chief LoneBear, former Chief of the Northern Arapaho Tribe in Wyoming, and former Kansas City Mayor H. Roe Bartle, a partnership that played a significant role in the history of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The internship is designed to expand career opportunities in professional sports for individuals of American Indian heritage by providing them experience across multiple departments within the business, including Communications, Stadium/Event Operations, Marketing, Social Media, Community Outreach, Human Resources and Finance. During the month of November, the individual is a dedicated resource for the team's Game Entertainment department, supporting the development, operations and logistics of the club's annual American Indian Heritage Month Game.

"As a club, we've regularly discussed our platform and efforts to educate and inform our fans of American Indian cultures and traditions," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "We also realize that we have the ability to impact the lives of young professionals with an interest in working in sports. Through the introduction of the LoneBear/H. Roe Bartle Rotational Internship, we believe we've developed a unique opportunity to provide first-hand experience working across multiple departments in a professional sports organization."

Myltin Bighorn, a native of Poplar, Montana, and a member of the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes, is the club's inaugural LoneBear/H. Roe Bartle Rotational Intern. Bighorn earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Kansas in May of 2022 and is currently enrolled in graduate school at KU, studying sport management.
