Second Growth: A Modern Lacrosse Story

Directed by Robert Carpenter

Lacrosse is an ancient Indigenous pastime played on North American shores long before the first settlers arrived. In the late 1800s, colonists appropriated the game and turned it into modern lacrosse, which has become a major contemporary sport. ‘Second Growth’ tells the story of the Indigenous lacrosse journey to regain agency in modern lacrosse and use the modern platform as the foundation of a larger cultural movement.
