MN to send lacrosse teams to North American Indigenous Games


August 6, 2019

Twin Cities Native Lacrosse director John Hunter is helping coordinate the tryouts for lacrosse, basketball, baseball and softball.

For the first time in 25 years, Minnesota will send a lacrosse team to compete in the North American Indigenous Games next year in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The last time a Minnesota lacrosse team played in the Indigenous Games was in 1995 when the Games were held in Blaine.

The 2020 North American Indigenous Games will be hosted by Halifax and the Millbrook First Nation, a Mi'kmaq community in Nova Scotia, from July 12 to 18. The Games will bring together more than 5,000 athletes and cultural participants from 756 native nations. Participants will compete in 15 team and individual sports, including archery, badminton, baseball, basketball, golf, rugby, soccer, beach volleyball, swimming and wrestling.
