This film explores the history and culture of the game of lacrosse interwined with the Iroquois Nationals and their journey to the 2007 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. Much more than just a Native American ball and stick game, lacrosse is a cultural window into Native American communities and their historical relationship with each other and the dominant culture. Sacred Stick airs Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 9 p.m. on WXXI World.
