INDIGENOUS NORTH AMERICAN STICKBALL -"WHAT IS THE CHEROKEE STICKBALL?"

 

 Indigenous North American Stickball is a ceremonial sport that originated from Native American tribes. Stickball is a street game related to baseball, usually formed as a pick-up game played in large cities in the Northeastern United States, especially New York City and Philadelphia. 

Stickball is known as one of North America’s oldest team sports. Several Native American tribes such as the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Seminole and Yuchi were known to play. Elder tribal leaders often organized games of stickball to settle disputes without violence.
