Native American Lacrosse in the Great Outdoors!

My project needs lacrosse sticks, balls, and two goals.

  • $683 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Camping? Sports? How do they go together? Long ago, Native American nations across the country played different versions of the game the French named "lacrosse." It was played as recreation, but also to settle disputes between groups, and to help decide the outcome of difficult decisions. In the fourth and fifth grade, one of my major goals is to bring my kids into the great outdoors. Recently, we camped at Big Basin, and through the generosity of a friend, were able to play an intergenerational game of lacrosse among the giant redwoods. Kids passed the ball around trees, through the underbrush and by a flowing stream. It was the perfect compliment to our study of Native history and helped bring our group closer together. Sports can be used to build community. How do we work and play together as a team? How do we handle disputes? My students need real practice in how to work together as a community, including how to have healthy competition. They need opportunities to use and develop their strength, while breathing clean air and learning how to be good stewards of our environment. Through playing this beautiful game in the great outdoors, we make connections between our lives today and the lives of those who went before us. I would like to purchase a class set of lacrosse equipment, so lacrosse can become a natural part of our outdoor education program. My wonderful, deserving, enthusiastic children will thank you.
