Ring and pin game. Many different Native American cultures played some version of this game. The specific rules and materials vary, but the overall purpose of the game is for the player to swing the ring into the air and catch it on the end of the stick. Among the Cheyenne, this game was considered a "love game", where willing to play the game with one another was seen as an acceptance or refusal of one's interest in the other.
