How Native Americans Shaped American Football

Tuesday, August 13 at 7:00 p.m.
ADULT PROGRAMS

Until the first decade of the last century, college football involved masses of men  smashing into each other with punching, eye-gouging, face-stomping and leg-biting.  A group of Native Americans revolutionized the sport by introducing strategy, and many of today’s rules owe their origin to these innovators.  Join us as we trace Native Americans’ contributions to modern football.
