Hundreds of Choctaw Indians gather in an open field. A referee tosses a ball into the air, and the stickball game begins. Men use sticks to pass a ball back and forth across the field. Their opponents tackle them, driving them into the ground. They fight hard to win the game, and fans watch closely. This game is not about simply having fun. For the Choctaw, this game means war.
