Opening Indian Event

With the sound of the whistle, and the start of the backwards running race, the 2014 Indian Games competition got under way with the Great Indian Track Meet, held Wednesday afternoon at the MacCready ball field.  The backwards race was just one of many events, as seen in this gallery:

In addition, each tribe had to perform a cheer.  “I think all of the tribes competed very well,” said Niall, of the Mohawk.  I thought we’d come in last, but it was third, so I’m happy!”

Niall’s Mohawk tribe is looking to snap a decade-long drought without an overall Indian Days title.  “I think wetrackmeet13 can do pretty well,” said teammate Noah.  “This year both our boys and girl look strong.”

As for the track meet, which was a boys only event, the Tuscarora came out on top.  “We put a lot of effort into it and it paid off, so I’m happy,” remarked James S, a first-year Tuscy. Just behind,in second place were the Onondaga.  “This has never been a great event for me,” said Walker, “and there were a couple places where we could have done better, but overall this is a good result.”  (See final results and tribal rosters HERE)
