Back in the late ‘70s, I worked at a summer camp where kids learned to ride Western-style; each “rancher” had his or her own horse for the summer, and job descriptions for the staff were ever-evolving. No matter what our job title was, everyone was expected to help get things done. For seven summers, week after week and day after day, we were constantly challenged by events that no one saw coming. A popular saying that we frequently quoted was something to the effect that “There were a whole lot of things no one told me about when I signed on at this place.”

Alie Jimerson was raised by her mother and father on the Cattaraugus territory 30 miles south of Buffalo, N.Y., which is part of the Iroquois Confederacy. On different reservations, the idea of women playing lacrosse was controversial. Lacrosse was seen, and still is considered, a men’s game, long entwined with ritual and creation mythology. On the Onondaga reservation in the Syracuse area, the lacrosse stick itself is viewed as a sacred object meant to be wielded only by males.
