7 days. 756 Indigenous nations. 5,000+ participants.
From July 12-18, 2020, more than 5,000 participants from across North America will meet in Halifax, Nova Scotia to compete in 16 sports for the 2020 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG).
The North American Indigenous Games is a multi-sport event and cultural celebration involving Indigenous athletes from across North America staged intermittently since 1990.
The NAIG Council was formed between 1992 and 1993, a 26-member council of representatives from 13 provinces and territories in Canada and 13 regions in the United States.
The vision was to improve the quality of life for Indigenous Peoples by supporting self-determined sports and cultural activities which encourage equal access to participation in the social / cultural / spiritual fabric of the community in which they reside and which respects Indigenous distinctiveness.
