Children play Social Stickball at the 1st Annual Indigenous Games
Children play Social Stickball at the 1st Annual Indigenous Games, which were hosted by the Lumbee Tribe of N.C. along with the Museum of the Southeast American Indian. Even with a down pour of rain, tribal members from the Haliwa-Saponi, Navajo, Waccamaw Siouan, Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, Shawnee and the Lumbee Tribe played competitive games of Chunkey and Social Stickball on Lumbee Field at UNC Pembroke. These are traditional Indigenous Southeast games. The players ranged in age from young children to adults.
