Aug. 29—NORTH MANKATO — For centuries American Indians settled disputes with a game. That game with a stick and a ball inspired modern-day lacrosse. But that traditional game was lost as American Indians were pushed onto reservations.
A new group formed to promote Indigenous culture in the Mankato area is hosting an opportunity for all to learn about the lost game that is being revived.
The American Indian Cultural Events Group was at North Mankato’s Wheeler Park Saturday and will be back Sunday inviting families to learn about the history and try their hand at playing the traditional game.
