Langaon rinn IROQUOIS BRAVES CHARGE DOWN TIE FIELD IN THEIR FAVORITE GAME, LACROSSE A player leaps high to catch the stuffed deerskin ball, which he will try to hurl across the opposing team's goal line. He may carry the ball in the racket but must not touch it with his hands. Lacrosse was as much the national game of the Indians east of the Mississippi as baseball is with modern Americans. Villages or tribes were often matched against each other. College youths in the United States and Canada play virtually the same game today.
