Inscription.

A-ne-jo-di, or Stickball, is a Creek game played around a single 5-10 meter pole, topped with a brightly painted animal skull, and a blue painted ring 60 cm toward the top. Points are scored by hitting the pole above the blue ring, or better yet, hitting the skull atop the pole with a small ball. The players use sticks that resemble a smaller version of ones used in Lacrosse. Games are played to four points.
