Nadzitsaga-Harney Lacrosse and the Burns Paiute Tribe will be hosting the Reservation Day Celebration & Pow Wow and the 6th Annual Amos First Raised III Medicine Games Lacrosse Tournament. The games are played in a more 'traditional' manner (as 'medicine') harking back to the origins of the game of lacrosse. The games are played in conjunction with the Paiute Tribe's Annual Pow Wow and Reservation Day Celebration, thus making for a unique educational, cultural, and history-filled weekend.
Each year the tournament has a specific theme. This year's theme for the lacrosse tournament will be "Play for Ezra". Ezra Parker, the son of former Corvallis Lacrosse Coach Josh Parker was recently diagnosed with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML) and is undergoing treatment. The entire lacrosse event will be played on behalf of Ezra and his family. Any and ALL proceeds will be donated to the Parker family. This is an 'open' round robin tournament, 7 v 7 (goalie, 2A, 2M, & 2D), game to 4 (four). Cost is $10/player checks payable to: Ezra Parker c/o Nadzitsaga Lacrosse. If you can't make the tournament but still would like to help Ezra, please visit his CaringBridge Page for details on how you can help.
At the end of the day on Saturday a 'Medicine Game' will be played for Ezra. The basic format is as follows: All players participate, no equipment-sticks only, teams selected randomly, 4" x 4" wooden posts for goals, game to 7 (seven). Wooden sticks/shafts are not only allowed but, encouraged! A Medicine Game was, and still is, played to help heal the sick. The Medicine Game is where the game we know as 'lacrosse' originates.
