To our people, the Game of Lacrosse is more than a sport. It is referred to as the Creator's Game and has both ceremonial and social purposes. Just like the head of a traditional stick, the game is woven throughout our culture. Traditionally, it was played for the enjoyment of the Creator, to settle disputes, and to prepare for battle. The modern game is enjoyed people all over the world and is the fastest growing sport in North America. However, as it sometimes goes, the origins of the sport get lost and the meaning to the Haudenosaunee People is often forgotten or disregarded.
This banner embodies the spirit of the great tradition of Lacrosse and provides a reminder to always "Respect the Game".
The Banner measures 9.5" wide by 15.75" tall and comes mounted with a traditional wooden stick silhouette overlaid along the top and a piece of hemp for hanging. The banner comes in a gift box.
