As Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers from the Turtle Lodge, we were invited by the Canada Games Host Society to offer an Indigenous perspective to the 50th Anniversary Canada Games. We acknowledge the Canada Games Host Society for taking a leadership role in respecting territorial and cultural protocols when holding an event on our territory.
As you walk along the Gimli shoreline, it’s hard to tell whether you’re in the prairies or walking along the ocean coastline. Lake Winnipeg stretches 30 kilometers into the distance and on a hot summer day, the beach is crowded with thousands of visitors, and cottagers who call Gimli their summer home.

I am REALLY excited about the upcoming Canada Summer Games that Winnipeg, Gimli and Kenora will play host to from July 28 to August 13! I hope you are too.
