Another of the traditional events is the stickball tournament. Stickball is a traditional sport that has been handed down from ancient times. You can read a bit about the history of stickball in an article that I wrote some time ago on my Art Gallery page. The Game Of Stickball
Along with all of the traditional activities and entertainment fun there is also an Art Show that is open to all Choctaw artists. They offer everyone an opportunity to participate by allowing artists like myself that live a long way from Oklahoma to mail in 3 pieces for entry into the show. This year I was fortunate enough to win some very nice prizes with the pieces that I sent in.
Chahta Nueska whom I have just discovered also won some prizes. Looks like between us we swept the Jewelry category. She won first place with this lovely repousse spirit horse on hand woven chain. Again utilizing copper. She has done a great job of creating the horse. She also won 3rd prize with a beaded piece which can be seen in the gallery on her website Chahta Nueska.
