American Indian Lacrosse free pdf To understand the aboriginal roots of lacrosse, one must enter a world of spiritual belief and magic where players sewed inchworms into the innards of lacrosse balls and medicine men gazed at miniature lacrosse sticks to predict future events, where bits of bat wings were twisted into the stick's netting, and where famous players were-and are still-buried with their sticks. Here Thomas Vennum brings this world to life.
