Putting together an event a large as the North American Indigenous Games, with over 5,000 participants from across Turtle Island, for a week of sport competitions and cultural activities, is no easy undertaking. It requires the collaboration, spirit and efforts of many partners and communities, to ensure that all participants have a world-class and impactful experience.
Our hosting partners include the City of Ottawa and the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation. In addition, the Ottawa region is home to many Indigenous Nations, including the Algonquin Nation, Akwesasne First Nation, Kitigan Zibi First Nation, Métis Peoples and the largest community of Inuit outside of the North. All of these communities contribute unique knowledge, services, and support that will ensure a culturally rich experience for all.
