The nation's largest Native American organization is disputing MLB commissioner Rob Manfred's reasoning on why the Atlanta Braves' nickname and its "tomahawk chop" fan ritual should be allowed to continue.

Calling it a local issue, Manfred said Tuesday the Native American community in the region is "fully supportive of the Braves’ program, including the chop."

“For me, that’s kind of the end of the story,’’ he added.
