The Cherokee Nation will host its 14th annual Traditional Native Games competition Saturday, April 20, at Carl Albert State College in Sallisaw.

Competitions include a cornstalk shoot, Cherokee marbles and horseshoes, which all start at 10 a.m., with the hatchet throw and blowgun starting at 11 a.m. and chunkey at 12 p.m. Registration is held 30 minutes before the start time of each game.

“The Traditional Native Games are a fantastic opportunity to experience our cultural games. The games are open to the public and are no cost to the competitor or spectator, so we invite all to come enjoy a fantastic day of competition and fellowship,” Traditional Games Director Bayly Wright said.

The top three finishers in each game at qualifying events receive a T-shirt and an invitation to compete in the Traditional Native Games Championship in August. The Cherokee Nation will host additional qualifying events in Stilwell, Ochelata and Locust Grove this spring and summer.
