Watch a Stickball Demonstration in Claremore!

On Sunday, June 9th, the Rogers County Cherokee Association (RCCA) will host a free special demonstration to teach the community about the ancient game of stickball which has been enjoyed for many generations in Cherokee communities. 

Various versions of stickball games have been played by tribes from East Coast to mid-continent. This game was called ani-jo-di, or the “little brother of war”. This version of the game was played only by men. Today, men and women, boys and girls, play what is called the “social game.” Participants will learn how to play the social game.

All community members are welcome to attend.  The demonstration will be held at the RCCA building located at 15488 East 523 Road near Justus-Tiawah School’s south campus. The demonstration will be preceded by a dinner and a brief membership meeting starting at 2:00 p.m.  The demonstration will start around 2:30 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs since the demonstration will be outdoors.

 For more information, please contact Amy Pinkerton at (918) 504-5853.
