Grantee Highlight: Amerind Museum & O’odham Games
Explore O’odham Traditional Games at the Amerind Museum in Dragoon on February 20th
Explore the history of indigenous sports and athleticism this month at the Amerind Museum in Dragoon, Arizona. Funded in part by a grant from Arizona Humanities, this program is part of the Fleet of Foot: Indigenous Running and Games from Ancient Times to Today project and seeks to compare commonalities and differences among historically diverse communities. On Saturday, February 20th learn about the ancient field hockey game of Toka played by O’odham women, and about kickball played by O’odham men. Discover these sports by watching players from the Tohono O’odham Nation demonstrate the games and participate in a Q&A after. Save the date for the Fleet of Foot exhibition opening in April 2016.
