    Background: A lacrosse stick may look like a simple affair but it takes a whole year to make one. The know-how has been passed down for generations among the Iroquois Indians at their Cornwall reservation. When The Queen visits Cornwall this summer she'll be presented with two stick -- for Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

    All the work is done by hand. Knowing when to remove the wood from its steam bath and just how much pressure to apply in shaping the stick is an art in itself. These Indians produced eighteen hundred dozen sticks last year for shipment mainly to the United States and Britain. An ancient craft in a world of assembly lines.
