Syracuse Preview

Syracuse sits on Iroquois homeland.  The Onondagas are and always have been box lacrosse champions. Before they built a modern arena for lacrosse and ice hockey, the Redhawks played outdoors at a field at the Onondaga Nation.  I like this portrait painted on the wall of the refreshment stand. I highly recommend a New Yorker article published in 1998 by John Seabrook about the Onondagas and box lacrosse. John Seabrook, The Sporting Scene, “The Gathering of the Tribes,” The New Yorker, September 7, 1998, p. 30
