The International Traditional Games Society is dedicated to the recovery, restoration and re-introduction of Native American Indian games. We believe our efforts to revive and reenact traditional games give power to the life-affirming expression of “What Holds us Together,” as we honor the unique cultural expressions of different tribes, including language, movement, and skills for shared survival.

Through workshops, special events and instructor certification, we are committed to the preservation of this core element of the first people's culture and traditions.


International Traditional Games Society was organized in 1997 by Tribal College Presidents and Tribal Culture Directors for the mission of recovering and restoring the traditional games of our regional tribes, including those relatives across the Canadian border. Find our extensive history here.
