Games[edit]

  • Cowboys and Indians or Indians and Cowboys, a make believe children's act of play: tag based on Western genre themes and the 19th-century conflicts in America between American pioneers and American Indians. Often the game involves different players rushing haphazardly around in a small area, alternately ducking behind objects and jumping up to point their fingers at each other and yell "bang", whereupon the person being "shot at" will either drop to the ground as though killed, or reply "missed me" and continue running and ducking. Many people[who?] frown on this game as being too violent and creating an overly-casual attitude in children's minds about death and killing.
