A young fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, who was accused of wearing "blackface" after donning a Native American headdress and face paint at an NFL game, has been revealed to be of Native American descent.

In an article titled "The NFL needs to speak out against the Kansas City Chiefs fan in Black face, Native headdress," Carron J. Phillips of Deadspin accused the young child, Holden Rumanta, of engaging in racist behavior. However, it has now come to light that Holden is actually Native American and was simply showing support for his favorite team by wearing the team's colors of red and black, along with a headdress that resembled the Chiefs' logo from the 1960s and early '70s.

Phillips wrote, "It takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at once. But on Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to hate Black people and the Native Americans at the same time." However, this accusation has been proven false, as Holden's apparent grandfather, Raul Armenta, is a business committee member at the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. Raul Armenta's childhood was spent visiting relatives who lived on the Native American reservation, according to a short biography.

Furthermore, it has been confirmed that Raul Armenta is the father of Bubba and the grandfather of Holden, as mentioned in a 2014 article that recounts Raul's survival of a shark attack. Additionally, Holden's great-grandfather, who was an elder of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, passed away in 2012, according to a news report.
