When they moved to Kansas City, the mayor of Kansas City was nicknamed "The Chief" thus there name is the Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs began play in the American Football League as the Dallas Texans in 1960. They moved to Kansas City and became the Chiefs in 1963.
The Chiefs go their name from the mayor of Kansas City! his nicname was "chief" so they named the team after him.
The name Chiefs was in honor of H. Roe Bartle, a mayor of Kansas City, who was nicknamed Chief. He got this nickname when the Arapaho chief Lone Bear made him a blood brother.
