Lacrosse was originally a way for Native Americans to test their strength, endurance, and speed. They used this game as a way to settle disputes, prepare for war, or for leadership. Women were forbidden to play because the game was unsafe and had no padding involved as it does today. Games could last several months at a time and often people were killed or severely injured.

I just saw this one by mistake so I figured I'd answer it (Don't know how long its been though)

the cue button is broken on my keyboard so bare with me here...The Irikoi Indians invented the sport as a token for the gods. When a team took the field, they knew very well that a loss would mean death by beheading without doubt. From there, I think you can get the picture as to why Canada felt this way.

The Mayans did chop off the losers heads. Some middle Eastern tribes also used heads in games. The English liked to put heads on poles in gateways and on bridges as a warning to people about breaking laws.
