A message from our organization

The Albany FireWolves are situated on sacred lands that are often considered the birthplace of lacrosse, the lands of the Kanien’keháka and Muh-he-con-neok people.  The Kanien’keháka (People of the Flint) and Muh-he-con-neok (People of the Waters that are Never Still) are more commonly known today as the Mohawk Haudenosaunee and Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans. Despite the similarity of their westernized names, the Mohawk and Mohican were culturally and linguistically distinct.  As we move towards our 2022/23 season, the Albany FireWolves are focusing on, and committing to, celebrating and respecting our Indigenous roots through gameday routines that celebrate our communities Indigenous history and events that educate our fans on the beautiful Indigenous origins we have in Albany.  Today (September 30), is recognized in Canada as Truth and Reconciliation Day, our staff wear orange to pay our respects to the residential school legacy that was forced on many Indigenous people, most prominently children.  We stand in solidarity with our Indigenous players, fans and local community members to proclaim that Every Child Matters.

For more information on the residential school legacy and history please visit the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation at https://nctr.ca/
