Ball-play of the Choctaws - Ball down - one party painted white; each has two sticks with a web at their ends, in which they catch the ball and trow it - they all have tails of horse-hair or quills attached to their girdles or belts.
Each party has a limit or bye, beyond which it is their object to force the ball, which, if done, counts them one for game.
by George Catlin, 1796-1872, American.
