Chief Wahoo to be removed from Indians’ uniforms after 2018 season. Reported by Ryan Lewis. Chief Wahoo’s days as part of the Indians’ uniform are numbered — this will be the logo’s last year on the field. Starting with the 2019 season, the Indians will no longer feature Chief Wahoo on their uniforms or hats, as outlined in a release from Major League Baseball on Monday. Chief Wahoo, a caricature-like logo of a smiling Native American, has been the cause of tense debate and protests for many years.
