The Medicine Game

September 24, PBS aired The Medicine Game in limited areas. The film follows Jeremy and Jerome Thompson of the Onondaga Nation as they pay homage to The Creator’s Game, whilst taking us on a wild journey.

The Medicine Game shares the journey of two brothers from the Onondaga Nation driven by a single goal; to play lacrosse for Syracuse University. In their darkest hour, with their dreams crumbling around them, the boys look to family and Native teachings for guidance. It is their search for identity that transitions a playful coming of age story to an important study of modern Native American life.
