NLL Commissioner visits Six Nay
National Lacrosse League Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz made his first visit to Six Nations last week and spent two days learning about Haudenosaunee culture and history.
Sakiewicz visited the Six Nations Council House for a meet and greet with Chief Ava Hill, and had tours of both the Two Turtle Art Gallery with Arnold Jacobs and the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford.
As well, Sakiewicz enjoyed a traditional dinner and tour with Rochester Knighthawks owner Curt Styres.
Sakiewicz is hoping to grow the NLL in his time as commissioner and as a self proclaimed history buff, his visit to Six Nations will likely be the most eye opening.
Sakiewicz said he loves the history of lacrosse and enjoyed immersing himself in Haudenosaunee culture.
Today, the NLL has nine lacrosse teams that span out across North America. There are currently 19 First Nations athletes in the league.
