Learning about lacrosse

Held in late September on the Onondaga Nation, Lax All-Stars member Connor Wilson welcomed the CiTi students to the Deyhontsigwa’ehs Lacrosse Weekend, hosted by the Indigenous Values Initiative.

The students also learned all about the “Words That Come Before All Else” from Tadadaho Sid Hill and the history of lacrosse from Onondaga faithkeeper Oren Lyons.

The visit was the first exposure to a sport for many of the youngsters that they otherwise likely would have never gotten the chance to see.
