Ted Montour joins the E-Lacrosse team for 2002 as our NLL and Canada Editor. He will also write a monthly column focusing on indoor, Canadian outdoor and aboriginal lacrosse. He is a communications and sports management consultant by trade. He hails from the Six Nations Grand River Territory in southern Ontario, an Iroquois community that is the most populous reservation in Canada. Six Nations is the home of lacrosse legend Gaylord Powless, who died earlier this summer after a long battle with cancer. There are ten players from Six Nations on NLL 2001-02 opening-day rosters, and 20 Native Americans from Canada and the U.S. in total (18 Iroquois, 2 Nishnawbe), plus Washington Power Head Coach Darris Kilgour.

A former Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) Junior player, coach and general manager, Ted resides in Ottawa, where he handled community and public relations last season for the Ottawa Rebel. Ted coaches minor box lacrosse in Ottawa with the Nepean Minor Lacrosse Association, and looks after media relations for the Nepean Knights of the OLA Junior B League.
