    Lacrosse descends from stickball games played by Northeast Native Americans:

    Mohawk "little brother of war,"
    Onondaga "men hit rounded object,"
    Ojibwe "bump hips."

    The Midwestern Sioux played a similar game. Southeast tribes played double-stick versions: the Cherokee, Choctaw and Cree. A women's version of the game was called “Amtahcha.”

    Lacrosse sticks were so treasured they were placed in cradles at birth. Players were often buried with their sticks beside them. The illustrations featured on these cards are by Jan Padover.
