Hand Game: The Native American Game of Power & Chance -

Unknown to most Americans, hand game - also called stick game or bone game - is the most widely played Native gambling game in North America. Every year thousands of American Indians pack up their lawn chairs and game sets, and hit the "hand game trail," competing on reservations throughout the West. HAND GAME was filmed on the Makah, Blackfeet, Flathead, Spokane, Walker River, Coeur d'Alene, and Crow reservations. Produced by award-winning filmmaker Lawrence Johnson, HAND GAME takes the viewer on a journey through Indian country, a journey full of humor, riveting music, and quirky characters.
