SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The Syracuse area is preparing for the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships.

The Onondaga Nation is hosting the 2015 championship games starting Friday. Local leaders say it is a special honor since the games are coming home to the birthplace of lacrosse. The games will be played Friday through Sept. 27 at three venues in and around the Syracuse area.

The Federation of International Lacrosse World Indoor Lacrosse Championship is held every four years. The 2011 games were held in the Czech Republic.

Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner raised the flag of the Iroquois confederacy at city hall on Tuesday to mark the games. Miner says the eyes of the world will be on Syracuse and its Native American neighbors.
