Best Answer

It's a hand gesture (slowly moving the hand up and down as if chopping with an axe) generally accompanied by a wordless "war chant." Sometimes done with a foam "tomahawk" (small war axe used by some Native American tribes) in hand. Used by fans of the Atlanta Braves to cheer on the team. Similar gestures and chants have been used by fans of other "Indian"-themed teams. It's been criticized by some for perpetuating a racist stereotype, but not everyone agrees that it does or even that it holds meaning outside the game.

A light ax formerly used as a tool or weapon by certain Native American people.

It is also a long-range, all-weather, subsonic cruise missile.

This tomahawk axe is from North America which is nowadays among American historical re-enactment groups also new Martial Arts such as Okichitaw have begun to revive tomahawk fighting techniques used during the colonial era.

Materials vary. Traditional tomahawks were stone (various types) with wood shafts. Modern versions are steel or an alloy with wood, metal, or composite handles.
