SayPro Describe the value of indigenous games;

Very few children have the privilege of playing indigenous games because parents do not want their children to be “dirty” or want to see where their children are. In most cases children are found watching TV and on social media most of the time. The latter could be explained by the low levels of safety of the country. However, parents should consider exposing their children to play because of the benefits of indigenous games. Children can have fun and developing skills without using gadgets.It is obvious that it is increasingly harder for traditional children’s games to compete against the ever-growing invasion of screens around the house that grab the attention of the youngest members of the house.Televisions, smartphones computers, games consoles… the house is full of electronics within reach of our children that offer many different (with some risks, although that is another subject) interactive entertainment options.This is not necessarily something negative, but sometimes we will find that our children completely abandon traditional children’s games that have so much to offer. As always, neither extreme is recommended, it’s great that children have fun with new technologies, but they should also find enjoyment with their parents and in the street, with their friends, playing classic games that have entertained so many previous generations.Children will always continue to enjoy games from the past, as long as they learn to play them. These games can also be of great benefit to them, they require physical activity, social skills, creativity, imagination, competition, camaraderie… and many more benefits that could fill an entire article.Quite simply, traditional children’s games stimulate their growth, physically as well as intellectually. They will also help them to make friends.There are several benefits of traditional indigenous games today:

  • bringing-together of indigenous and non-indigenous people;
  • help reconnect urban indigenous youth to their culture;
  • boost education retention (i.e. attendance at school);
  • promote reconciliation;
  • provide essential training in social interaction;
  • Enhance physical health.

Many indigenous people see their traditional games as a strong indicator that their culture can survive. In this way traditional games are not only helping indigenous youth to get physically fit but also inspiring older members of the indigenous community
