There’s a top 10 list somewhere as to why Frank Malfitano, producer, director, talent cultivator, and cultural savant “gets it” when it comes to showing pride for Syracuse and Central New York. Bringing Chief Lyons, the statesman, onto the stage at Jazz Fest tonight is high on that list. Respect.

In case you decide to check out the Rolling Stone piece by Sean Penn, which will be remembered more for the post controversy than the actual writing, make sure to flip a few pages to the right to see the Dicaprio profile, which includes the photograph above.

Turtle Clan Faithkeeper Oren Lyons, who was an all-American Lacrosse goalkeeper at Syracuse University, along with Professor Philip Arnold, former SU lacrosse/football star (and NFL player) Jim Ridlon and former SU lacrosse coach Roy Simmons, Jr. discussed the history, progression and sportsmanship of lacrosse earlier this week at Syracuse Stage.

They appeared as part of the Onondaga Land Rights & Our Common Future Educational series coordinated by Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation.  Lyons talked about classic battle with Mohawk players and playing with broken ribs.

Coach Simmons insisted that lacrosse is a gentleman’s game, not a savage game. He also talked about the evolution of the lacrosse stick from being made with wood and animal gut to the more modern kevlar and nylon version.
