Lacrosse is Canada’s summer sport. Originally played by the Indigenous people of North America, the ceremonial game was a gift from the Creator and it had spiritual and healing purposes. Featuring interviews with Mohawk faithkeepers, traditional stick makers, players, coaches, and historians – and full of beautiful archive photographs and video – Lacrosse: A Nation’s Game is a compelling look at a game whose roots run deeper than Canada itself.

This program delves into Indigenous history, oral tradition, the history of lacrosse, the first exhibition game in 1834 between Akwesasne and Kahnewake players, the Oka Crisis, and more.
