While it is common knowledge that lacrosse is a game invented by Native Americans, just how deeply ingrained the game is with Native American life is perhaps not as widely appreciated. In a recent conversation, Teioshontathe McComber ’18, a member of the Mohawk Nation and the Iroquois Confederation, expands. “Lacrosse brings people great joy,” McComber explains, “the purpose of any game, for both players and spectators. You’ve heard that ‘laughter is the best medicine,’ right?” he asks rhetorically. “Well, sick people in my community are brought to lacrosse games as part of the healing process. Their joy in watching the game helps them get better.”

The game’s cultural significance does not end there. Read the full story at: www.salisburyschool.org/featured-athlete, you won't want to miss it!
