In 1927, a Hominy, Oklahoma-based football team comprised of local Native Americans, who called themselves the Hominy Indians, faced off against the vaunted New York Giants, in what was later described as a “spectacular game.”

WGN obtained home movies taken around that time for this segment for Backstory with Larry Potash.

Backstory airs Saturday nights at 7 p.m. and Sunday nights at 11 p.m. on WGN-TV and on the WGN+ app, available on Amazon, Roku, Apple TV, and any smart TV.
