The 2011 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) have been canceled.
Todd Winters is the Executive Director of the Aboriginal Sport and Recreation Circle NL.
He says they’ve just found out that the Milwaukee Host Society have pulled out of hosting the games due to financial reasons.
Winters says the Aboriginal Sports Circle of Canada is now trying to figure out something for 2011 or 2012.
Board meetings had been held in Conne River Newfoundland last month to develop a timeline for Team Newfoundland and Labrador’s participation.
The NAIG were to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from July 10 – 17, 2011.
