Woodland Ojibwa
(Chippewa) Native Americans


Lacrosse was played with two poles. At the end of each pole was a piece of net, shaped like a basket.

The object of the game was to toss a ball back and forth and catch it in the basket at the end of your pole.

Although you could not touch the ball with anything except your net, you could use your pole to hit another player. You could trip players.

Lacrosse was a rough game. It was a warrior's game. It was also a national game. Village played village, while onlookers cheered for their favorite teams and booed the opponents.
