The call today also coincides with the launch of the volunteer registration portal through the Regina 2014 NAIG website.
“The Regina 2014 North American Indigenous Games are not just a celebration of Indigenous youth, sport, and culture. The Games are also about cooperation and building communities. The answer we get to the call will no doubt showcase those values which the people in this province share. We are extremely proud to have SaskEnergy on board with us to help with a project of this magnitude and we are looking forward to working with them”, says Regina 2014 NAIG CEO Glen Pratt.
Manager of Aboriginal Affairs, Gillis Lavalley with SaskEnergy adds “ As Saskatchewan’s Champion of Volunteers, we know our community investment is worthwhile; volunteers are, undoubtedly, the driving force behind the success of any major event in our province, but this is especially so for events of the scale and caliber required to host the North American Indigenous Games.”
Regina 2014 NAIG will host the athletes and teams from 26 regions in North America’s Indigenous communities as they compete in 15 different sports. It will celebrate and share North American Indigenous cultures through a showcase of language, tradition, art, song, dance and ceremonies. The theme of the Regina 2014 North American Indigenous Games is “Raising the Bar” and we will do this by exhibiting youth excellence in sports and culture
