In November, the Warrior Diamond National Showcase All-Star team selected Citizen Potawatomi Nation member Chase Peltier to participate in a weekend-long lacrosse tournament in Baltimore, Maryland, to exhibit his skills for college recruiters from across the country. The 16-year-old Peltier descendant recently spoke with the Hownikan about his experience with the game and time in Baltimore.
Citizen Potawatomi Nation is set to host a lacrosse exhibition at Oklahoma Baptist University’s Lacrosse Complex. All local youth interested in taking up North America’s original sport are invited to attend the Lacrosse Exhibition Day on Sunday, Sept. 22.
Tribal member Bryce Peltier — a player for top state and regional lacrosse club teams — has instructed CPN lacrosse clinics. Peltier first got involved in America’s oldest sport, a game that his ancestors likely played, while looking for another sport to participate in.
