Battle of Wits: Playing peon with Cocopahs

Author:

For hundreds of years native warriors with the Cocopah people have gathered together to test each other's strength and resolve during a traditional game called peon. It is unknown where the game was created or when it was created, but peon (pee-OWN) became a way for warriors to test each other and to compete for horses or other goods.
