This week’s episode of Outside the Eight is Part 1 of 2
We are back with another riveting episode of Outside the Eight. Have you checked out our past three episodes yet? If not, then you should! You can do that by clicking here.
This episode of Outside the Eight is Part 1 of 2, with the amazing, fearless, dare I say tenacious, Trenna Hill. Prepare to get schooled on a few things including what it means to grow up playing lacrosse as a Native American girl, a breakdown of the Creator’s Game, persevering through a lot of tough stuff and creating avenues for future generations of female lacrosse players.
The conversation with Trenna was so good we had to break it into two installments.
On this episode we talk about:
1. Growing up on the Onondaga Reservation
2. What the Creator’s Game is all about
3. Picking up a (non-wooden) lacrosse stick as a young girl
4. Experiencing ridicule and bullying just by doing something you love
5. The intersectionality a half Native American half Non Native woman experiences
6. The pronunciation of some words that are tough to say
7. A brief history of both men and women’s lacrosse
8. Why you should stay tuned for next week’s Part 2 of the conversation!
Trenna grew up in upstate New York and played at Syracuse, graduating in 2014. She played in the 2007 and 2013 World Cup with the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) National team. She recently completed her Master’s degree in High Education at Syracuse and packed her bags to move out west. Along with coaching with Defy Athletix and other club teams when she has time, she is the head coach for both UCLA women’s lacrosse and Palos Verdes High School.
