Lacrosse is Canada’s summer sport. Originally played by the Indigenous people of North America, the 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.
A wonderful program that will delves into Indigenous history, storytelling, the Oka Crisis, the history of lacrosse and more.
