2017 TRADITIONAL GAMES CHAMPIONSHIPS

FEBRUARY 24, 2017 TO FEBRUARY 26, 2017

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 2nd, 2017

The goal of the NWT Traditional Games Championships (TGC) is to increase participation and awareness of Inuit and Dene Games at a territorial level. The TGC will build on the programs that the Aboriginal Sport Circle of the Northwest Territories (ASCNWT) and Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA) have been running in schools and communities across the north.

The objectives of the NWT Traditional Games Championships are:

  1. Increase the number of NWT residents participating in traditional games.
  2. To support athletes with an interest in traditional games and who wish to pursue these games at a higher level.
  3. To involve all NWT communities in traditional games events.
  4. To develop and maintain traditional aboriginal culture as well as social components of the traditional games.
  5. To showcase the talents of NWT residents in traditional activities.
