One of our final interviews was with Choctaw player, Deborah Cole of Roff, Oklahoma. Lara and I are working on a book about how Choctawans, and other southeastern Natives, invented the root game of base and ball, maybe as early as 3500 years ago. For this scholarly book, we're interviewing native ball players and "reading" the ancient mounds in the southeast for clues to the age of base and ball.

    Tks Ruth for asking, and thanks to our Miko in the field, Jay Watson, for reminding us all of the dates. I hope to be there in the stands in Norman with all the rest of the NDNs. It’s going to be hot, but we’ll have fun watching the games.
