Cancelled: Badawage (Lacrosse) and Atlatl Throwing

Did you know that lacrosse is the oldest sport in North America? The Indigenous Peoples of Michigan invented this game and it served two functions – fun AND training young people to learn to hunt! Join us as we practice some basic lacrosse skills and learn how these skills prepared young hunters to throw large darts with an atlatl – a hunting tool even older than a bow and arrow. You’ll even get a chance to try your hand at the atlatl.
