A group of Native American high school girls defied tradition by playing—and excelling at—lacrosse. The documentary “Keepers of the Game” reveals both the triumphs and obstacles the team and the girls individually experienced. In this inspiring and emotional encore presentation, we talk with some of the key people featured in the documentary. We also hear from the director about making the film and how it’s received by audiences and critics. We’ll also explore the history of lacrosse and what it means for girls to take up the sport.
