Traditional native games were an important part of tribal culture and were used to teach honor, respect and responsibility.  Participants will learn about and play a variety of games ranging from no-sweat stationary games to more active sports that test your skills. At the end of the program, participants will craft their own set of hand games and participate in a tournament using the crafted set.
