Premiering May 18, 2012, Crooked Arrows is the story of a Native American lacrosse team making its way through a prep school league tournament.

A mixed-blood Native American, Joe Logan, eager to modernize his reservation, must first prove himself to his father, the traditionalist Tribal Chairman, by rediscovering his spirit. He is tasked with coaching the reservation’s high school lacrosse team which competes against the better equipped and better trained players of the elite Prep School League.

Joe inspires the Native American boys and teaches them the true meaning of tribal pride. Ignited by their heritage and believing in their new-found potential, coach and team climb an uphill battle to the state championship finals against their privileged prep school rivals…will they win?

Crooked Arrows is an original, uplifting sports movie in the tradition of such classics as Mighty Ducks, Bad News Bears, Hoosiers, and Bend It Like Beckham–set in the fresh, contemporary worlds of Native American reservations, prep schools, and lacrosse…

The film featured several Natives including Tylery Hill – Mohawk, Cree Cathers – Mohawk, Michael Hudson – Mohawk, Aaron Printup – Tuscarora Nation, Orris Edwards – Onondaga Nation, Emmett Printup – Tuscarora Nation, Miles Thompson – Onondaga Nation, Ty Thompson – Mohawk Nation, Lyle Thompson – Onondaga Nation, Derek Bennett – Onondaga Nation, Alex Cook – Mohawk Nation, Shaye Thomas – Onondaga Nation, and James Bissell – Tuscarora Nation.

    Finally, we do need more ‘native american’ movies. To see culture.

      I am all for any Native centric movies that show teens in a positive light. Most people today Ndn and white see our younger generation as a bunch of directionless hoodlums. If it gives the kids a positive image I’m all for it. I liked the Edge of America for the same reason. And that we are shown as in the modern day and age doesn’t hurt either.
