Open to players of all ages, this coed game is your chance to play our traditional game beloved by tribes across Oklahoma. No experience needed—simply show up with sturdy shoes and sticks (if you have them). Cultural Ambassadors Ace Greenwood (Chickasaw/Cherokee) and Tresa Gouge (Muscogee/Seminole) will provide an overview of the game and its rules for first-timers and will lend sticks to those without. This is a social game for all ages.
