There is no doubt that certain tribes feel a strong affiliation to lacrosse


and I see no harm in acknowledging their connection to the game.

There does tend to be an over "mythologization" of the game, but in some very jingoistic ways, that is part of the appeal. The Onondaga Nation participates in this as well through things like their backing of the movie Crooked Arrows. There certainly was outrage when their team was denied visas to participate in the world games, and rightly so.

On points like this, were the intention is one of respect, I tend to say - let's not take ourselves too seriously.
