Trade not only facilitated the cultural exchange of religion, language, and material goods between tribes, it also made possible the exchange of games and sports. Once a new game or sport was acquired, a tribe would make adjustments in order to make the games their own. For instance, depending on supply, local materials were often used in place of “authentic” materials; or depending on which numbers were significant to a particular tribe, the number of participants who played, or the number of game pieces used may have changed.
