The Journey of Tiak Hikiya Ohoyo (Director Mark D. Williams [Choctaw])
This compelling documentary follows the Choctaw women’s stickball team from the community of Standing Pine as they compete for their first championship in the World Series of Stickball in Mississippi. This inspiring story reveals the history of stickball – more than a sport, the ancient game is medicine, and part of Choctaw identity. The film provides a window into the importance of the game to the ladies who play for their ancestors and their communities. (Digital Feather Media, 2021, 48 min.).
