An all-Native American professional football team called the Hominy Indians played in 1920s and 30s Oklahoma. Twenty-two different tribes were represented; some played for one game, some for years. Founded and financed by two Osage brothers, Ira and Otto Hamilton, they had a 22 game winning streak and the chance of a lifetime to play against the World Champion New York Giants in 1927. This is their story.

Admission: Free.
