A: Yes, Cherokee people had toys and games, such as a hoop game where kids and teenagers tried to throw a dart through a moving hoop. Lacrosse was also a popular sport among older boys and adult men. You can read about Cherokee lacrosse on this page: http://www.delvallacrosse.com/lacrosse_history.htm.

Hope that helps!
