Spirit Game Pride of A Nation

Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation is the best documentary ever done on a Native sport and stands alone in placing a game within the broader context of the fight for Native rights. The producers pull the strands of the story together, weaving family, community, spirituality, sports and politics in a manner never done before by anyone in any media. The film sets a high standard for addressing the most compelling issues and concerns of the Iroquois while capturing the spirit of the game.

IN PERSON: Faith Keeper Oren Lyons (Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Seneca Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, Executive Producer), Peter Spirer (Co-Director) , Gayle Anne Kelly (One Bowl Productions, executive producer),  Joanelle Romero (founder RNCI & RNFF;  Actor, Award-winning Director/Producer, AMPAS, Humanitarian ), special invited guests to be announced soon!
