Native Americans throng to Louisville women’s basketball game to cheer on Schimmel sisters
Shoni and Jude Schimmel are rock stars in the Native American community. People follow them across the country.
If you doubt the drawing power of the University of Louisville’s basketball-playing sisters, consider the persistence of Debbie Ridge and Meske Wind. They were among 60 members of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation who were scheduled to make a 700-mile bus trip to the KFC Yum! Center to see No. 3 U of L play top-ranked Connecticut on Monday for Native American Appreciation Night.
