Local NewsSix Nations athletes competing at North American Indigenous Games

Six Nations of the Grand River (SNGR) is very-well represented at the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG), which began on Saturday, July 15 and run through Sunday, July 23, 2023.

A large contingent of local athletes, coaches and volunteers will take part in the tenth annual NAIG in a variety of the 16 sports within 21 venues across Kjipuktuk (Halifax), Dartmouth, Millbrook First Nation and Sipekne’katik.

SNGR is very proud to help support our young athletes, volunteers and coaches. This journey is more than just about winning medals. It is about participation, camaraderie, sportsmanship, connection, and so many life experiences.

NAIG 2023 will bring together more than 5,000 athletes, coaches and team staff from over 756 Indigenous Nations celebrating, sharing and reconnecting through sport and culture with the help of 3,000 volunteers.

“We can’t say enough about how proud we are of our local athletes.” said Chief Mark B. Hill. “To have this many participants in one of the largest Indigenous athletic events in the world says a lot about our community. It says a lot about how active our youth are. It shows how involved our community members are. And it also shows how much pride we have here on Six Nations of the Grand River. Good luck, and most of all, enjoy the experience.”
