Exclusive Clip: Lacrosse Movie “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation”

Posted on May 3, 2017 at 1:17 pm

Lacrosse originated with the Iroquois, which they call their “medicine game,” and is the lifeblood of their Nation. The Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Team is not only among the world’s best, but ambassadors for their Nation’s sovereignty and recognition. In 2015, the Iroquois hosted the World Championships on Native soil for the first time ever, in which history, politics and culture all collided on the playing field before the eyes of the world. We are delighted to share an exclusive clip from “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation,” a new documentary about the remarkable story of the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Team on their historic journey to the 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship. For the first time ever, the World Championship Games were hosted by a native nation, on native soil in Onondaga, the Capitol of the Iroquois Confederacy, in upstate New York. It will be in theaters May 26, 2017 and will be available on iTunes and VOD June 20, 2017.
