2020 North American Indigenous Games- Leadership Opp.

In July of 2020 Nova Scotia will host nearly 1000 Indigenous nations from across North America in a celebration of culture, people, tradition, and athleticism. During the Games, over 5000 young athletes (aged 13-19) will compete and showcase their skill while also representing their unique community’s culture and heritage with pride. Since the first games in 1990, the NAIG has been responsible for generating tens of millions of dollars in economic impact for host cities. As host to the 2020 Games Halifax has been provided with an unprecedented opportunity to connect communities from across North America and celebrate Mi’kmaq culture and heritage, leaving a lasting legacy of unity and hope that will endure long after the games are completed.

 

The 2020 NAIG Host Society Board of Directors and 2020 NAIG CEO are currently looking to fill three key leadership opportunities.
