The Tomahawk Chop is derived from a gesture popularized by fans of the Florida State Seminoles. Supposedly, Deion Sanders, a Florida State product, taught it to Atlanta Braves fans when he joined the Braves in 1991.

When did Florida State fans first use the tomahawk chop?

Florida State University started the tomahawk chop in 1984 in a game against Auburn. Thereafter it became the signature of FSU games. Atlanta "borrowed" the chop when Dieon Sanders came to the plate early in his first year with the Braves. The Kansas City Chiefs have shown no shame and have adopted it as their own in recent years as well. The music for the chop was written by a music professor at FSU and was copy writed some years ago.
