Biography

Rain in Face won a bronze medal in 1904 lacrosse with the Mohawk Indian team representing Canada. Some sources list the Mohawk Indian team as actually an Iroquois Indian team. They apparently were from the area surrounding Brantford, Ontario. As one would expect with First Nation athletes from that era, nothing can be found of his life. We can only speculate if there was any familial relationship to Rain-in-the-Face, who was a warchief of the Lakota tribe, and was among the Indian leaders who defeated George Armstrong Custer and the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment at the 1876 Battle of Little Big Horn.
