Tribal Games: Practical and low budget sports played in the Tribal areas

The indigenous people are outdoorsy and have a good time hanging out in nature, near rivers, mountains and trees. These earthly elements also form the basis of many of their games, creating a strong bond between them and mother nature. While indigenous people worship nature, they also explore their creativity and design games to learn life lessons while playing outdoors. Some of their games are played during the day, while others take place on full moon nights.
