2011 North American Indigenous Games

The next North American Indigenous Games may see Labrador Inuit athletes in action.

The games will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in July of 2011.

Next week representatives of the Labrador Inuit and Métis will travel to Conne River Newfoundland to attend board meetings.

Todd Winters is the Executive Director of the Aboriginal Sport and Recreation Circle of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Winters says the meetings will take place on July 3rd and 4th.

The main priority of the meetings is to develop a timeline for the organizing of Team Newfoundland and Labrador.

Winters says he has been planning a strategy for three months now on how they’ll select coaches, athletes and other necessary staff.

He says once that is finished, they’ll start the process and hopefully have their entire team selected by August 31st.

This will give them approximately ten months to practice and fund raise for the games.

Winters says he is currently preparing for the trip to Conne River, and he’ll speak with the OKâlaKatigêts Radio Department when he returns.
