The Vision for NAIG

The vision:

To improve the quality of life for Indigenous Peoples by supporting self-determined sports and cultural activities which encourage equal access to participation in the social / cultural / spiritual fabric of the community in which they reside and which respects Indigenous distinctiveness.

"The vision of the NAIG, from the very beginning, along with my brothers, Willie Littlechild of Ermineskin First Nation at Hobbema, and Big John Fletcher of Piikani in Southern Alberta, was one of our interest and concern about what was happening among the young people in all of our communities. . . We took it upon ourselves to try and find something constructive for the young people to look forward to. And, what it was eventually, was that we would put together a plan for a Games through which the young Aboriginal people could come together to excel in their athletic field of endeavor and to come together to do other things: to make new friendships, to renew old ones, and so on..." (Charles Wood, 1990 Chairperson)

The dream became a reality in 1990 with the first Games in Edmonton, Alberta…the vision continues...

NAIG Council Formation

The NAIG Council was formed between 1992 and 1993 with the help of the hosts from Edmonton, Alberta and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan along with other key individuals.
The founders of the North American Indigenous Games from Alberta, Canada in a manner consistent with their cultural traditions, handed over the governance and management of the Games to the newly formed NAIG Council.

The NAIG Council is an incorporated, non-profit organization registered in Marysville, Washington, USA. NAIG Council is also registering their non-profit status in Canada. It is governed by a board of directors and supported by its member regions from Canada and the USA. There are 13 representatives from Canada and 13 representatives from the United States on the Council.
