The California Valley Miwok Tribe received a flyer from the California Indian Museum & Cultural Center located at Santa Rosa California, informing the Tribe about an upcoming event titled “Native American Sports Heroes.”
Native American communities have produced many sports champions. From track and field to ice skating. Native American youth have overcome tremendous challenges and (in the words of Hiram Thorpe) have “shown the world what Indians can do.” Explore the lives and experiences of Native American sports stars, from the late 19th century up to the present. Learn more about both professional and amateur players, and their triumphs over the odds.
