"Fierce began in the same way lacrosse did on the fields of Indian Country sustained through tradition and passion. It is a part of our culture and the term can be heard in any conversation of our communities. It is used in many different contexts that can mean vicious, bad, good, passionate and humorous just to name a few. Together, history and modern culture became the foundation of our business. Now, we not only play, but we are living our dream by selling products and apparel that we use ourselves. We test each piece with care Nike Lebron 11 Away On Feet

Jimerson on Fierce Lacrosse, "On May 1st, 2010 we opened Fierce Lacrosse on the Seneca Nation Cattaraugus Indian Territory located 35 miles south of Buffalo, New York. The Cattaraugus Indian Territory is one of three Seneca Nation Territories in Western New York. The other two are the Allegany and Cuba Indian Territory located 60 and 90 miles from Cattaraugus toward the Bradford, Pennsylvania border. These communities are referred to as territories due to the fact that we are one of the only tribes that still occupy their aboriginal territories. Although their aboriginal land diminished significantly; we were never relocated to a reservation out of our aboriginal territory. Our warriors fought fierce to retain the land we have today."
fellow lacrosse players can appreciate. In addition to selling equipment, we are creating a community that fosters the passion and love of the game. We are players first and businessmen second," Jimerson continued.
"We have a rich tradition of Lacrosse in our communities that is rooted in our culture. Many men have played this game through generations and we were fortunate to have some of them with us today. This past month, we opened two brand new state of the art facilities on our two main territories in Cattaraugus and Allegany. It was a blessing to have two men with us that were one of many who have cultivated the game of lacrosse for generations within our communities. It is a renewed state of mind for the start of Lacrosse this season in our communities where it was once limited due to lack of venues and floor time to play. Now, there are more resources and facilities available so that the game can continue to grow within our borders the Nike Metcon Grey Gum Release Date
way it was once played by our elders." Jimerson told IL.
Jimerson explains, "The T shirt and shorts feature our 5 Nations Hiawatha Belt and is a symbol of the original 5 Iroquois Nations banded together as one. The symbolism of this belt is strength, unity and peace. Part of the foundation of the belt is the message of each single arrow that represents each nation can be broken, but united as one they are unbreakable. This feature not only represents these Nations who have a deep rooted history of Lacrosse, but it represents the strength and unity of being a Team."
Jimerson says, "Today, there are approximately 7,800 members of the Seneca Nation where approximately 3,000 still reside on SNI Territories. Between the communities, there are two minor box lacrosse systems that are part of the Native American Minor Lacrosse Association (NAMLA) that is conducted throughout the Spring and Summer season in Nike Zoom Neon Green New York. There are 350 youth boys within our communities that play part in the minor system and NAMLA League. We also have 3 Senior B Men Box Lacrosse Teams that are part of the Can Am Lacrosse Association. There is a Seneca Girls Field Lacrosse program throughout the summer ages 7 15 years old that have 73 girls and a Fall Girls Field Elite Lacrosse program ages 14 18 years old."
Owner Ryan Jimerson told us that when they go to tournaments, "We also educate our non native brothers and sisters on the they are playing as well as about our people the Haudenosaunee."
