CQ CQ THIS IS W ZERO W ..W  ZERO W SPECIAL EVENT STATION  STANDING BY.

.....THIS IS W0W SPECIAL EVENT STATION <W0W> HERE IN PETAL MS.  MY NAME IS ______________.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR CALL.   THIS STATION IS IN SUPPORT OF OUR ANNUAL NATIVE AMERICAN POW WOW.     EACH YEAR WE HIGHLIGHT SOME PART OF THE COLORFUL NATIVE AMERICAN LIFE.     THIS YEAR WE ARE FEATURING “LITTLE BROTHER OF WAR” OR STICK-BALL.  QRZ.COM HAS ALL THE DETAILS AND  I ASK YOU GO THERE FOR DETAILS AND FOR QSL INFORMATION.  A SPECIAL QSL CARD IS PROVIDED.


IN ORDER TO EDUCATE ON NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE, A  PART OF THAT CULTURE IS HIGHLIGHTED EACH YEAR WITH THE W0W SPECIAL EVENT OPERATION. THIS YEAR WE ARE FEATURING "LITTLE BROTHER OF WAR" OR STICKBALL. RATHER THAN RESORTING TO BLOODSHED, NATIVE TRIBES WOULD RESOLVE THEIR DISPUTES WITH THE "LITTLE BROTHER OF WAR" OR STICKBALL CONTEST. IT IS A VERY SERIOUS CONTEST PLAYED WITH NO PADS,  FREQUENTLY  RESULTING IN LOTS OF EXTREMELY VIOLENT PLAY. AT THE END OF THE GAME, ALL REMAIN FRIENDS. TO KEEP THE TRADITION ALIVE,  A TOURNAMENT IS HELD ANNUALLY NEAR PHILADELPHIA, MS ON THE GROUNDS OF THE MISSISSIPPI BAND OF CHOCTAW INDIANS. BELOW ARE LINKS AND FURTHER AMPLIFICATION OF THE PROCESS.
