Lacrosse

 

Modern day lacrosse descends from and resembles games played by various Native American communities.

These include games called dehuntshigwa’es in Onondaga (“men hit a rounded object”), da-nah-wah’uwsdi in

Eastern Cherokee (“little war”), begadwe in Mohawk language (“little brother of war”), baaga`adowe in Ojibwe (“bump hips”) 

and kabucha in Choctaw.

 

Lacrosse is one of the oldest team sports in North America. There is evidence that a version of lacrosse originated in what

is now Canada as early as the 17th century. Native American lacrosse was played throughout modern Canada, but was most

popular around the Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic Seaboard, and American South.

Lacrosse demonstration activities take place on the Gathering Place Stage on the North End of the grounds (US Cellular Stage).

The Honor Game takes place in Urban Park (the island across from the Summerfest grounds on the lake.)

6-7PM – Lacrosse, Menominee History & Soft Lacrosse

Saturday, September 9

Urban Park

Noon - 5on5 Lacrosse - This is a new addition to the Indian Summer Lacrosse lineup. Coaches and players 
will participate and learn about how to run practices and even games using less players. We will not 
allow for goalies, and the goals will be much smaller. This allows for players to concentrate on more 
man down/up situations and create more demands for shooter pass and shot on goal accuracy. It also will 
model a way for you to bring the modern game into smaller students populations with schools and 
athletic club play! Registration: Contact – Hot4Lax Lacrosse, Robin Buckley 262-717-9996
