About Turtle Island Lacrosse
Turtle Island Lacrosse believes that all people on Turtle Island (North America) deserve to experience the game of lacrosse and learn the cultural understanding of the sport.
Founders and Current Professional Lacrosse Players Randy Staats and Brendan Bomberry of Turtle Island Lacrosse have developed a curriculum to provide groups and individual players with access to the knowledge and experiences that they have gained during each stage of their careers. Spreading the knowledge of their culture as Haudenosaunee people and the game throughout Turtle Island and beyond is our ultimate goal.
