Traditional Native Games
Tasiha Unpi (Catching Deer Bones
with a Needle)
Played informally by adults and children, male and female, but only women played it in formal competition and for stakes. The pin is held in one hand; the bones in the other hand. The player tosses the bones in the air and then attempts to catch the bones with the pin. Points are awarded according to the number of bones and/or the number of beaded loops that are caught on the pin. If all the bones are caught, the player automatically wins.
