Content Culin 1907: 794 "Piman stock. Papago. Mission of San Xavier del Bac, Pima County, Arizona. Mr. S. C. Sims informs me that he saw the game of coyote and chickens, pon chochotl (figure 1091), played by this tribe on a diagram traced on the smooth ground. A red bean was used for the coyote and twelve grains of corn for the chickens. Another form of the game was played with twelve chickens on wach side. This latter was played for money, the first game being regarded as too easy to bet on. Both papago and Mexicans play, mostly men. "
