XLrator Media has acquired all rights to “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation,” a documentary about the Iroquois NationalS Lacrosse Team’s 2015 season. This culminates in the 2015 World Box Lacrosse Championships, which were held on the grounds of an Indian Reservation for the first time (coincidentally, in Onondaga in upstate New York, the Capitol of the Iroquois Confederacy). The documentary focuses on the spiritual importance of lacrosse to the Iroquois Confederacy, which is a central part of their heritage and one they consider to be a “medicine game” given to them by the Creator. 

XLrator Media will release “Spirit Game: Pride of a Nation” on their “Lifeframe” documentary label. The film will be be available in November 2016 as part as Native American Heritage Month.
