Imagine inventing a sport and then being shunned by it. That's the Haudenosaunee story


August 24, 2020

The means the Haudenosaunee individuals inform it, the animals of the forest gathered for a nice ballgame. The highly effective bear and swift deer led one staff; on the different facet stood the hawk, eagle and owl.

Just earlier than the begin, a mouse and squirrel approached the birds, asking to hitch in. It appears that they had been rejected by the bigger four-legged animals due to their dimension. The birds welcomed them.

This ancestral story serves as a metaphor for the Haudenosaunee, a confederacy of Native American communities scattered throughout the Northeast, and the generally uneasy relationship they’ve with the sport they invented.
