The North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) is an event that celebrates the rich cultural heritage and athletic prowess of Indigenous communities across North America.
The games, held July 15 to 23, saw Levi Dickson (16) and Tehya Dickson (15), residents of Cardiff Echoes and students at Paul Kane, return to the area with medals.
Tehya Dickson came home with a silver medal in the 800 free, one silver medal, and one bronze medal in relays. Brother Levi came home with four medals: a bronze medal in the 50-metre backstroke, a bronze medal in the 200-metre backstroke, a silver medal for the 100-metre backstroke and another for relay.
“This experience couldn’t have been any better. It was surreal. I am so thankful for the memories our whole team made and how well and easily we all bonded through the week,” Levi Dickson said. “I have never had more fun in my life. NAIG 2023 is definitely one for the books. I swam well, which was one huge goal and coming home with those medals made things that much better.
