Indigenous Sport and Wellness Ontario stops in Sudbury on their tour to promote the 2021 Masters Indigenous Games
Indigenous athletes from the Greater Sudbury area and beyond were invited to Cambrian College the weekend of Oct. 26, to participate in the Masters Regional Tour hosted by Indigenous Sport and Wellness Ontario (ISW).
The Masters Regional Tour was introduced this year to encourage athletes to practice and compete for the chance to test their ability at the upcoming 2021 Masters Indigenous Games (MIG) taking place in Ottawa July 8-11. This was the group’s second stop in their tour across the province, the first of which was in Rama First Nation (Chippewas of Mnjikaning).
MIG was introduced following the success of the organization’s long-standing North American Indigenous Games (NAIG), which provides Indigenous youth aged 13-19 with the opportunity to compete against their peers in a variety of sporting activities. There have been NAIGs hosted every three years since being launched in Edmonton, Alberta in the year 1990.
