This easy to use resource promotes physical activity for families who are camping, teachers in classrooms, tribal programs, park employees or museum presenters.
The games bring values from tribal cultures:

  • Honoring the person who gave the most challenge
  • Respecting your competitors
  • Having courage, persistence and skill
  • Being humble even when winning
