The Three Basic Forms

Southeastern: A version of the game was played with double sticks. Unknown to many, this version of lacrosse is still practiced by Southeastern tribes today. Two-and-a-half foot sticks are held in both hands, and the deerskin ball is held between them. Tribes included - Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, Seminole, Yuchi and others.

Great Lakes: These players used a single three foot stick. The pocket of the stick is about 3 to 4 inches in diameter, which is scarcely larger than the ball. Tribes included - Ojibwe, Menominee, Potawatomi, Sauk, Fox, Miami, Winnebago, Santee Dakota and others.

Iroquoian: Played with the northeastern stick, which was the originator of the modern day lacrosse stick. This stick is usually more than 3 feet long, it was known for its triangular, shallow head.
