Well besides the fact that Lacrosse is a very famous sport that many men and woman play it was also invented by the Native Americans (the Lakota or Sioux Indians to be exact) and the idea has been passed on and the rules have changed to what we call LAX or Lacrosse. The name was different when the Indians created the sport but i'm not sure what that was.
