The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Denver Broncos at noon on Sunday, Oct. 28. Fans can find important information and reminders about Sunday's game below.
American Indian Heritage Month Game
The Kansas City Chiefs are proud to recognize American Indian Heritage Month throughout the month of November and honor the rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories of our community and to acknowledge the important contributions of native people.
As part of the day's pregame festivities, Vice Chairman Fred Thomas and Treasurer Russell Bradley from the Kickapoo Nation of Kansas will lead a traditional American Indian "Blessing of the Four Directions" in the way of their people. The blessing is meant to bring a sense of preparation and good spirit to the day. After the blessing, the Native American drum group, "The Young Bucks," will prepare the Chiefs drum for a special gathering by performing an Honor Song.
Prior to kickoff, the national anthem will be performed by Erica Bread, a member of the Kiowa and Cherokee Nations of Oklahoma and the colors will be presented by Native American Veterans of Kansas City.
