Lacrosse : Tewaarathon

Long before any European set foot in North America, First Nations people had been playing the sport of Lacrosse. Played as a way to entertain their creator in the same way a parent enjoys watching their children at the park. Playing past fatigue with no protection, Tewaarathon (Lacrosse) players would play in hordes across vast plains with wooden sticks and a deer hide ball. Nearly a century later settlers began to play the sport themselves. From what used to be a fierce game resembling full-out war to the organized National summer sport of Canada; this is a quintessential pastime whether in the forest or in the box.
