Dream Catchers: The Crow Cowgirls Hit the Road for Shoni Schimmel

On Thursday, August 7, WNBA rookie and All-Star Shoni Schimmel played her first game in the Pacific Northwest in three years. The game was a sellout, with Natives showing up in force to cheer on their hero, who, after leaving her home rez (Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation) excelled at Franklin High School in Portland, Oregon, and became a nationally-known star at the University of Louisville.

Eastern Conference All-Star Shoni Schimmel of the Atlanta Dream celebrates with the MVP trophy after defeating the Western Conference All-Stars 125-124 in the WNBA All-Star Game.
