Long ago there was war between the Cherokee tribe and the Comanche tribe over land.
Many warriors from each tribe lost there lives in battle.
Two years after the great war, there was a drought. The conflict over land had still not been resolved. The drought was killing many members of both tribes.
The tribes still would like to resolve the problem with the land. But both tribes have lost many lives to the war and the drought. both chiefs come together to try to come up with a peace full way to settle there problem.
They made a game called lacrosse. There are sticks that you can throw and catch a ball with. And shoot it into a goal. People will not die but there is contact so people could still get hurt.
And so they agreed on the game instead of war. They played lacrosse for now on instead of war. This is how lacrosse was made.
