England's leading rugby team has retired its "Big Chief" mascot but decided against rebranding, despite a group that got thousands of signatures on a petition calling for change. At matches, Exeter Chiefs fans wear headdresses and perform with tomahawks. As The World's Rupa Shenoy reports, fans who support the club's branding say it's a tribute to Native Americans.
