The November edition of US Lacrosse Magazine has two important stories about diversity and inclusion in Lacrosse (Deyhontsigwa’ehs). The first article discusses changes being made in Dakota Premier Lacrosse League and the creation of a Native American Advisory Council for US Lacrosse. The second article is a study in making traditional wooden sticks with Alf Jacques of the Onondaga Nation. There are continuing challenges in the lacrosse community to embrace the values of the Haudenosaunee embodied in the “Creator’s Game.” We applaud The “Tewaaraton Foundation’s” efforts to increase the level of respect and knowledge about the indigenous roots of the game.
