We invite educators to introduce your students to Indigenous culture and spiritualism through the Creator’s Game. Lacrosse has always brought people and nations together and served as a starting point for relationships. “Lacrosse – The Ancient Game” and ”Education Guide and Student Workbook” will serve as an important first step to understanding First Nations culture and history.
“Lacrosse – The Ancient Game” and the brand new supplemental “Education Guide and Student Workbook” can collectively serve as a starting point for a greater understanding of complex issues. It is targeted for students in grades 6-12. Both authors of the Guide – Tewenhni’tatshon and Jim Calder - share over a hundred years of involvement with the game.
“Lacrosse – The Ancient Game” was the first book of its kind when it was launched about a decade or so ago. It became a best seller. It explored Canada’s National Summer Sport using a foundation of oral tradition regarding the original medicine game. It showed the interest in the game by settlers and the ensuing creation of an amateur sport, complete with its own set of rules. Lacrosse would go on to become Canada’s National Summer Sport and serve as an international vehicle for supporting and sharing Indigenous views.
