Our mission is to awaken (the spirit), educate (the people), develop (the game) and unite (the fires)
Our vision is to witness all Anishinabek playing Baagaadowewin with pride and wisdom all across Turtle Island
We are guided by the principles of the seven teachings
Wisdom, Love, Respect, Bravery, Honesty, Humility, and Truth
Founded in December 2019 in Anishinabe Territory.
Lacrosse has been played among Anishinabe Nations since time immemorial. Within the past 150 years the game has almost been lost.
Tribal groups represented within the Anishinabe Nation include Odawa, Ojibway, Potawatomi, Delaware, Chippewa, Algonquin, and Mississauga. These tribal groups have interacted for countless generations and share common social, cultural, heritage, language, and spiritual customs and beliefs. The governing structure of the Anishinabek existed before contact with European settlers, and in the 1600s, was formalized through the Three Fires Confederacy of the Ojibway, Odawa, and Potawatomi.
Anishinabe Baagaadowewin is a nonprofit Corporation with a mission to share Anishinabe history and culture.
Anishinabe Baagaadowewin will look to rekindle this to bring the memory of Anishinabe style lacrosse and the modern interpretation of lacrosse together.
