'I feel the spirit of the people and a connection with mother earth in my heart when I run.' These are the thoughts of 16-year-old Veronica Charter, a gold medallist at the North American Indigenous Games.

Award-winning filmmaker Annie Frazier Henry follows an elite handful of Aboriginal athletes from British Columbia for two years as they make their way to the 2002 North American Indigenous Games in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Here over 6,000 young Native sportsmen and women from across Canada and the United States come to compete.

It is an exhilarating journey of achievement, dedication and hardship. Spirit of the Game is a tribute to the ones who are rekindling the fire and glory of sport, for whether they win or lose, they all come home heroes.
