Just got back from 5 days in the Georgia mountains at the Rivercane
Rendezvous, an Earthskills workshop that I try to go to each spring and
fall. So much to learn each time, with primitive lifeways and skills being
the focus. There are also visiting guests from the Cherokee tribe to teach
traditional basketry, pottery, and blowguns. So much fun and so much to
learn, I have been there for 5 times and still cannot repeat a class!
Below is a Native American game that I learned, thought I would pass
them on to you all! It is really fun and good for all ages.
Sun and Moon: Materials: 2 pine cones, 1 piece of twine or cord
about 18 inches ( ~45 cm) long, a short stick about 10 inches (~25 cm). Tie
the twine ariound the middle of each pine cone, leaving about 6-8 inches
(15-20 cm) between the 2 cones. Now pair up and using the stick, toss the
cones to your partner. Your partner has to catch it on his/her stick and
toss it back, without using hands. Levels of difficulty can be increased
(distance, etc) as the players get more practice. You can also play solo,
tossing and catching with yourself. If 3 are playing, try tossing in a
circle. Very little kids to big adults played this game and all enjoyed it!
Hope you enjoy this game
