The Medicine Game

The Medicine Game


“There are two times of the year that stir the blood. In the fall for the hunt, and now for lacrosse.” -Esteemed Elder Oren Lyons, Jr. (Onondaga/Seneca)

Two brothers from the Onondaga Nation pursue their dreams of playing lacrosse for national powerhouse Syracuse University. The obstacles in their way are frequent and daunting, but their love for the game, each other, and their family’s unyielding determination, propels these youth towards their dream.
