Gaylord Powless was playing lacrosse by the age of three. His father was a famous player who taught Gaylord everything he knew. But Gaylord's tremendous skill and native ancestry made him a target on and off the lacrosse floor. Gaylord learned that the best revenge was to improve his game. He became a standard for sportsmanship and skill and a pioneer in promoting equality for Canadian athletes of all ethnic backgrounds.
