Indigenous Sports at Fort Calgary

Saturday 23 March 2024 - Did you know that some of the sports we know and love today have origins dating back thousands of years? On Sunday, March 24, join us at Fort Calgary to learn about the history of Indigenous sports across the land we now know as Canada. You’ll also get to try your hand at playing some of these sports, including the national summer sport of Canada: lacrosse! This program will consist of two sections: a historical presentation on the history and origins of Indigenous sports and a practical session to try playing some of the sports highlighted. Please ensure you wear comfortable clothes you can move in to get the most out of this program! - Event Details
