Dear Nova Scotia First Nation Communities / Organizations / Volunteers:

 

The Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Youth, Recreation & Active Circle for Living (MYRACL) is inviting the First Nation communities, their leadership and organizations as well as any interested parties such as parents, coaches and volunteers to our Information Session regarding the 2006 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG). 

 

The Information Session will be taking place at the Claymore Inn in Antigonish, N.S. on Tuesday, November 8th, 2005 from 10:00am – 3:00pm.  Lunch & refreshments will be served.  Participants must cover their own travel and accommodations (if required).

 

As you may know, MYRACL has been very supportive of the opportunities for Mi’kmaw athletes and teams from Nova Scotia to participate in high caliber regional, national and international events such as the NAIG 2006.  Scheduled to take place from July 2nd – 9th, 2006 in Denver, Colorado, the Colorado Indigenous Games Society (CIGS) has been working very hard in preparation for over 5000 Aboriginal athletes from all over North America.  In 2002, it was this same prestigious event that drew over one hundred and fifty (150) Mi’kmaw participants from Nova Scotia to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the 2002 NAIG.  At those games, over 8000 athletes and cultural performers helped to make it a very successful and memorable event for many of our participants.

 

The 2006 NAIG will be taking place in Denver, Colorado, USA and we are now in the process of trying to find the best way to deal with issues surrounding participation numbers, selection of athletes and sports and qualifying of teams and individuals. 

 

In closing, representatives from communities, schools, leadership and organizations are invited to attend an upcoming information session on the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG). 

 

Should you have further questions and to confirm your participation, please contact me at 902-756-3300 (w) or (902) 295-8200 (cellular) at your earliest convenience or via email at robert.bernard@ns.sympatico.ca

 

Sincerely Yours,

Mr. Robert Bernard

Executive Director,

Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Youth, Recreation                      

& Active Circle for Living (MYRACL).
