Treaty 2 Territory – AMC invites FNT2T to meeting with The Manitoba Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Council for review; to give our indigenous athletes an opportunity at both grassroots and high level sports and recreational programming.
Today, with Assembly Manitoba Chiefs interim Grand Chief and Treaty 2 Territory Ogichidaa Cornell McLean, FNT2T was honoured to join the meeting and speak on structure and the child first approach that is happening in the Onakonehkewinan (law) making process.
The Children Family & Nation Mino Ombigii’aa Onakonehkewinan certainly supports this process along with the Odaminoang Onakonehkewinan. Both laws give the Nation a chance to develop solid programming at the grassroots level and also give all athletes a chance to advance.
The FNT2T team which included Lead Keeper Boh Kubrakovich and Sports and Recreation Keeper Craig Beaulieu presented the four pillars of the government and the reclamation governance that work currently happening. A strong message was given that The Anishinaabek Nation is advancing and will continue the do so from grassroots to international levels.
The U20 and Minor Hockey Championship hosted by FNT2T continue to help this vision and supports the mission set out.
The T2T Summer Games 2022 in Kakakwekejeong this summer will highlight 6 sports that will allow athletes within the territory to demonstrate their skill and talent. The Winter Games 2020 in Pinaymootang enhanced sport and created relationships.
“We would like our athletes and members to be part of sports, recreation and arts in our territory and the FNT2T laws will give such opportunity, said Ogichidaa McLean.
“Our coaches and officials need to be certified to help with our process and we could use MARSC as program delivery through our regional offices”, said Ogiima Wayne Desjarlais whose Nation is hosting the Summer Games 2022.
