Lacrosse: The Creator's Game

Tapestry

For many Indigenous nations throughout North America, lacrosse is referred to as the Creator's Game and is known for its power to heal people and communities. In this episode, historian Allan Downey talks about the way lacrosse has been used for both assimilation and Indigenous empowerment over the centuries. In some Indigenous cultures, lacrosse is only supposed to be played by men. You'll hear from Amy Lazore and Terri Swamp, two Haudenosaunee women who have worked to allow girls on the lacrosse field.
