Medicine Man Lacrosse announces the purchase of 15 lacrosse sticks for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. October 11th, 2012 marked the first lacrosse clinic at the Umatilla Indian Reservation. It was presented by Rick Roy of Nadsitzaga Lacrosse, Cam Bomberry of Iroquois Lacrosse and organized by John Meade, Child Welfare Program Manager, State of Oregon DHS.
The Confederated tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation are made up of the Cayuse, Umatilla and the Walla Walla people. Residing in the area known as Northeastern Oregon/Southeastern Washington, the three bands were united as a single tribal government in 1949. Currently, the reservation has over 2,800 tribal members who continue to care and live on the land of their ancestors.
The lacrosse clinic was held on Thursday at Nixyaawii School for 25-30 youth and numerous adults. These young individuals were able reconnect with their heritage during the clinic. Several youth really embraced the stick and the game and nearly all witnessed a change in behavior and demeanor. Read more of Rick Roy's experience here.

Medicine Man Lacrosse creates new collaborate lacrosse based community that serves the interests of independent lacrosse stringers, lacrosse members and players interested in learning to string their own stick. Our vision was to create a user-centric website with high regard for the community and the individual. Our mission is to create a collaborative environment that connects the community and provides a more integrated and functional hangout for lacrosse players.
The new social community on www.LacrosseFeed.comfeatures a business directory where lacrosse stringers can create a business listing and describe their services, detail their prices and upload their latest works. Stringers can also upload their work and tag by head design or manufacturer name in the portolio section. Players can submit lacrosse head reviews, write stringing tips or discuss topics in the new lacrosse forums.
Our vision has come a long way, and after months of development we are very pleased with the final result. We hope to use Lacrosse Feed as a platform for ideas and technologically advanced way to follow our mission of "Connecting the commnunity through the shared identity of play".
