We finally got to announce our opening and closing night films yesterday! Our Opening Night film is Keepers of the Game! Here’s some more information on the film:
Some of the earliest forms of lacrosse originated on Akwesasne Mohawk Territory but the game has historically been the preserve of men. Just off the reservation at Salmon River High in Fort Covington, NY an all-Native girls’ lacrosse team comes together, seeking to be the first Native women’s team to bring home a Section Championship. But the team faces ambivalence in their own community and the girls must prove that the game of lacrosse is their rightful inheritance. With more than just the championship on the line, the girls fight to blaze a new path for the next generation of Native women, while honouring their people’s tradition in a changing world.
