1999 North Shore Indians - 1936
North Shore Indians were widely credited for drawing attention to the sport of box lacrosse in British Columbia in the 1930s. During the Depression years, the team offered out-of-work fans an escape from the cold reality of the era for only twenty-five cents a ticket.

The North Shore Indians displayed amazing stick skills—their passes had the velocity of shots—and they controlled the game by controlling the ball. Although the team never won a Mann Cup and were in a national final only once, the North Shore Indians, who were mostly from Squamish and also from the Six Nations reserves, were BC’s most exciting team.
