APPROACH TO SPORT

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) has five calls to action relating to sport and recreation:

#87 Tell stories of Indigenous athletes.

#88 Ensure long-term Indigenous athlete development and growth.

#89 Change the Physical Activity and Sport Act to reduce barriers and increase Indigenous sport participation.

#90 Ensure sport policies, programs and initiatives are inclusive and reflect Indigenous culture and anti-racism awareness.

#91 Ensure International sporting events involve Indigenous peoples and respect territorial protocols.

Ideas to support these calls to action in your program:

  • Use a co-leadership approach.

  • Learn about the culture and the community you live in.

  • Speak to elders and learn about community protocol and traditions.

  • Find ways to include cultural aspects into your program.

  • Introduce ceremonies, songs, and dance as a way to celebrate or honour guests.

  • Learn about and honour protocols of host communities when you travel.
