Lacrosse The Ancient Game is divided into three sections. In Section I. The Words of a Cayuga Faithkeeper - Dao Jao Dre explains the significance of the game within the traditional culture of the Cayuga nation. We all share that sense of the special nature of the Creators Game that we cant quite put our finger on. Dao Jao Dre tells us just what that is.

Section II. explores the growth and change of the game after European contact. Most significant events happened in the area of the lower St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario including Michigan to the West and Vermont to the East.The Finger Lakes in Upstate New York, and Ontario to Quebec in Canada form the Cradle of Lacrosse. No other geographical location would serve as the primary launch pad for the earliest University and Club teams. Lacrosse would become a formalized sport in the early 1860s through rules provided by Montreal dentist and Father of Lacrosse, Dr. George Beers, and spread to the US through his US equivalent - John Flannery.

The Final Section, Section III. The Stickmaker explores the holistic relationship between the great craftsman of the game the stickmaker , the player who uses the end product, and the ritualistic process that existed and barely exists today.

The Iroquois maintain that we are all related. The game in many ways ties together the various peoples who traded with each other, fought with and against one another, and worked together to form the new world. It survived the unrest and turmoil of nation-building and reminds us of our shared past. It is the Creators Game and it is Lacrosse the Ancient Game.
