Crazy Ann Althouse Strikes Again
After Scott Brown's staffers were caught imitating Native American war whoops and making tomahawk chops, it fell to poor Ann Althouse to make a few interesting backflips and try to dismiss this as being a "celebration" of some kind.
You would have to travel through several armpit-high bullshit tanks in order to arrive at a statement along the lines of "The Indian is his hero." If your intention is to support your baseball team--the Braves, in other words--then the Tomahawk Chop has a specific connotation for supporting the efforts of your baseball team on the field (it is patently offensive, but people still do it).
If your intent is to mock Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry claims, it's denigrating and sad.
