"The Creator's Game: A Story of Baaga'adowe/Lacrosse"
“ ‘The Creator’s Game’ is a story that bounds generations. Too often, the evolution of the lacrosse, with all its new equipment and flashy gear, gets in the way of the real reasons the game is here. It's a gift, and it is to be used wisely. It's called the medicine game for its healing powers. And in the case of young Travis Skinaway, it’s his confidence that benefits from the medicine game. Lessons from his past build a foundation for his future, which is what any parent wants for children. It’s a lesson that applies in any walk of life but in this case, it's baaga’adowe that comes to the rescue.”
A devoted lacrosse player and fan, Coulson worked as a daily journalist in numerous cities, including as a reporter for the Democrat and Chronicle in Rochester, NY, and wrote an award-winning column about contemporary American Indian issues. Recently, he has worked in local government communications and operates a design and strategic communications agency. A resident of the Twin Cities, he frequently returns to the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma to visit with family and improve his knowledge of the Cherokee language.
