VOTED A JOLT WORTHY EVENT! The public is invited to participate in this Navajo winter night oral history game taught through song and playful teasing of opponents.
Keshjee,' the Navajo Shoe Game, is centuries old as a game of choices, represents life and the fact that the natural order of things cannot be changed. Not every choice can be correct, but the lessons are learned and experience is gained. Neither lying or cheating can change the outcome and the payment of a fee of yucca stems is still required.
In Navajo society, the Shoe Game is a game played in winter. A ball, usually made of wound yucca root, is hidden within one of several moccasins. The moccasins are lined up and the players try to guess which one has the hidden ball.
