Sagkeeng and Norway House to split hosting duties

The Manitoba Indigenous Summer Games will return in 2025 to Norway House Cree Nation and Sagkeeng Anishinaabe Nation.

Details for the 10th iteration of the multi-disciplinary event were unveiled Monday during a ceremony hosted by the Manitoba Aboriginal Sports and Recreation Council.

The Games will run July 9-14 in NHCN and Aug. 17-23 in Sagkeeng. It’s the first time since 2022 the event has been held, although the last time was through virtual participation.

“This selection is a testament to the strength, resiliency and vibrancy of our community. It speaks volumes about the rich cultural heritage and sporting prowess that Sagkeeng embodies,” SAN Chief E.J. Fontaine said, adding the region is anticipating upward of 3,000 visitors during the event.

Sagkeeng has upgraded its sports facilities in recent years to build for a successful bid at hosting the Games. Norway House has done the same, building a multiplex and adding fibre optics for high-speed internet.
