Object 3. Lacrosse Stick:

This is a traditional lacrosse stick made of wood and string which was invented by Native American Indians in 1000 A.D. It is used to catch the ball and to strike the opponent to take the ball from them; it’s the main tool used when playing lacrosse.

Lacrosse, originally known as stickball, has widely changed since it was first invented. In today’s world, lacrosse sticks are used to play this quite violent game for fun and competition. But it wasn’t always like this, lacrosse was first invented as a game to train young Native Americans to prepare to fight. This relates to the culture of the Native Americans and its now culture of the modern-day Americans. Americans have now acquired lacrosse and they have turned it into an activity used for entertainment and competition. This is the culture of the Native Americans being passed on to Americans.

Knowledge is something that can be communicated. Therefore, the link between knowledge and a lacrosse stick is the traditions being carried on. The fact that lacrosse is still being played today tells us that the Native Americans were able to carry on their traditions and therefore give their knowledge to future generations. Americans have taken the Native’s knowledge and turned it into their own.
