The Indigenous Soccer Cup (ISC) is an event which is held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, every year since 2007. In it’s time, more than 800 youths from local and national and international Native communities, have joined in on the week long celebration of Native culture and soccer. Basketball has long been the most popular choice of most Native American kids but on these dusty pitches of New Mexico, soccer is growing in popularity. Pasuckuakohowog is the Native definition of football.
