My neighborhood, the Riverview Neighborhood Association, is home to a recent Oklahoma Centennial project, a sculpture in Creek Stickball Park. Located at 18th & Cheyenne in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the sculpture features three Native American youths playing stickball – a traditional game with ceremonial significance in the Native American Culture.

The statue in Creek Stickball Park was made possible through a $250,000 donation from the Oklahoma Centennial Commemoration Commission. Besides the sculpture, this provided park amenities including wrought iron fencing, new sidewalks, landscaping, irrigation and benches.

Dedicated in December 2008, the park is located directly across the street from the Creek Council Oak Park. The sculpture in the Stickball Park was created by Talala-based sculptor Sandra Van Zandt. Her work is detailed and magnificent – please drop by to enjoy our new beautiful park.

A-ne-jo-di, or Stickball, is a Creek game played around a
single 5-10 meter pole, topped with a
brightly painted animal skull, and a blue painted ring 60 cm toward the top. Points are scored by hitting the pole
above the blue ring, or better yet, hitting the skull atop the pole with a small ball. The players use sticks
that resemble a smaller version of ones used in LaCrosse. Games are played to four points.
