About Indigenous Sport

Sport means different things to different Indigenous peoples and groups.

This section collects info relating to Indigenous sport from two sources.

Firstly, interviews we have with people working in sport. We deliberately target people working for organizations and events where the indigenous experience is the focus.

Secondly, we source original content to highlight the unique experiences of indigenous people.

And while much content in this category is based on the experiences of indigenous people in Canada, we hope to capture more from the United States soon.

Above all, our goal is to make this a hub to contain regular updates for this growing trend.

So, close this popup and begin learning about what indigenous sport is, how you can get involved and how some jobs are based around it.
