An Onondaga father and son make lacrosse sticks in the traditional way. Filmmaker Jack Ofield writes "Lacrosse Stick Maker features Alfie Jacques and his father, Lou Jacques. Alfie was in his early 20s when I filmed him. He is seen actually making the stick. His father is seen lacing up the leather thongs.
