[PAST EVENT] NALS Movie Night: Keepers of the Game
Join NALS and William and Mary Women's Law Society for a movie night showing "Keepers of the Game" about an all-Native girls lacrosse team from Salmon River High in Fort Covington, NY. Popcorn and pizza will be served.
Synopsis fom the Tribeca Film Festival: Lacrosse was born in Akwesasne Mohawk Territory as a sacred game, traditionally reserved for 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 first, they will have to overcome their crosstown rivals, Massena High. As the season comes to a head, the team is faced with increasing 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 still honoring their people's tradition in a changing world.
