Keepers of the Game

US, 2016, documentary, 82 min

Although lacrosse on Akwesasne Mohawk Territory has historically been the preserve of men, an aboriginal girls’ lacrosse team is formed at nearby Salmon River High School in Fort Covington, New York. 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 Mohawk women, while honouring their people’s tradition in a changing world.
