This week, more than 5,000 Indigenous athletes, coaches, and team staff are arriving in Mi’kma’ki for the 2023 North American Indigenous Games. Representing 756 Indigenous Nations, the teams will be welcomed by 3,000 volunteers.
For several Dal community members, it was an easy choice to get involved.
“I have been invoked in multiple Canada Games, as an athlete, coach, mission staff and chef,” says Michelle Aucoin (pictured), interim women’s volleyball head coach for the varsity Tigers. “I love multi-sport games, so when the opportunity arose to get involved with NAIG, it was a simple decision for me.”
That love for sport also drew in both Dal athlete Kelsey Crocker and adjunct faculty member Kathy Spurr.
