Stickball Team - Tvshka Homma

For participants and many of the spectators, the game is far more than just a sporting event, representing a cultural tradition that has a great deal of historical and spiritual significance. Since 2010, the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma has sponsored its own stickball team (Tvshka Homma), which competes against other teams every year at the Tvshka Homma Labor Day Festival, Mississippi Choctaw Fair, Chickasaw Fair, and other venues.  Team members also do stickball demonstrations and exhibitions.  During much of the year, that team has weekly practices at different locations in southeastern Oklahoma.

There are 4 Choctaw Community teams in Oklahoma:

    Okla Hannali: Broken Bow, Ardmore, Oklahoma City, Stillwater
    Southeast Thunder: Broken Bow
    Koi Chito: Talihina
    Sintullo Lakna: Durant, Atoka
