Dehontshihgwa'es (Creator's Game) by sculptor Jud Hartmann located at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks. A plaque accompanying the statue reads in part: "The game of Lacrosse was given by the Creator to the Ho-de-no-saunee (Iroquois) and other Native American people many ages ago. It is from the Iroquois that the modern game most directly descends. May this sculpture forever honor the Iroquois and the origins of Lacrosse".
