The Evaluation of the Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation

When I saw the trailer for this film, I thought it was going to be about the history of lacrosse and interviews of hall of fame players. Unfortunately, I wasn’t expecting much from it. But that immediately changed when I watched the first ten minutes of the film. I loved the feeling and compassionate of not of just the sport, but of what the sport meant to the players and how it represents their nation. I felt very connected to the elders, former and current players because of theirs beliefs and how lacrosse should be played with a clear mind. The players did not allow their personal conflicts with opposition interfere with their performance. It was really important to stay disciplined and focused. What really upset me was the issue of the Canadian Team not allowing the Haudenosaunee People to stamp their passports even when every other nation compromised and accepted that they were their own nation.
