The sound of the bat rang out across the Chickasaw Nation Softball Complex as five t-ball teams squared off on April 11 in the first Chikasha To’ili Tournament, under the direction of Tiffany Postoak, a Chickasaw citizen and East Central University political science and legal studies major.
Chikasha To’ili means ‘Chickasaw Baseball’ in the Chickasaw language.
In an effort to collect clothing for Native American children in foster care, Postoak was able to collect five large boxes, valued at approximately $1500, and was able to donate another $150 for emergency needs.
