When and where was
lacrosse created?
The origin:
Members of the various
Algonquian language groups
referred to early ball games as
baggataway.
Strong
similarities among the war
club, lacrosse stick, and even
the drumstick, shown in
photos of early Ojibwa
implements, support the
connection between these
early ball games and the later
development of lacrosse.
There is also a strong link
between lacrosse and the
Mohawk ball game known as
tewaarathon. As with other
early Indigenous ball games,
tewaarathon served a few
functions; as the game was
played by a large number of
warriors on fields that could
be over a kilometre long, it
kept young men fit and strong
for both war and hunting. It
could also be played to
strengthen
diplomatic
alliances, support social
conformity and economic
equality, and honor the gods.
In general, Aboriginal women
were excluded from these
games, although in some First
Nations women did play ball
games on their own, or with
men.
Lacrosse used to be called “le jeu de la crosse” (the game of hook stick)
(French)

The Canadian national team:
The Canadian national team is one of the top field lacrosse teams in the world, and competes in the World
Lacrosse Championships, which take place every four years. In 2006, Canada won its first championship
in nearly three decades when it defeated the United States of America 15–10. At the 2010 Championships
in Manchester, England, Canada was narrowly defeated by the US team in the championship final. The
2010 World Lacrosse Championships were notable for the absence of one of the strongest lacrosse teams
in the world, the Iroquois Nationals. The Iroquois Nationals represent the Haudenosaunee on both sides of
the Canada–US border; it is the only Indigenous team that has been sanctioned to compete in international
sporting competitions.
