"There's nothing like a crises to focus the mind."
My experiences as a researcher and volunteer in Indigenous-led sport crystallized in May 2020 when, in Canada, amid the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement catapulted racism to the forefront of public discussions.
This was five years after the Truth and Reconciliation Commission completed its mandate, and one year after the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls inquiry published its final report, making it the perfect political storm to address ongoing Indigenous concerns about sport.
This site builds on that rare combination of events to advance Indigenous-led sport in Canada. It does this by serving as an online hub for identifying and discussing useful research and by producing commentary focused on Indigenous sport in Canada. My aim is to promote informed and responsible advocacy in the sport sector.
