HISTORY

Communities in the Prince Albert Grand Council have a long history of excellent athletes participating in a broad range of recreation and sporting activities. This is particularly true in the core sports of baseball and hockey. The Chiefs of the Grand Council recognized that a recreation program needed to be much more than a few individuals participating in team sports. That recreation in it´s broad sense would provide the greatest good to the majority of our membership while recognizing the unique cultural and linguistic traits of our communities. At the same time, the Grand Council wished to participate and excel in the First Nation Summer and Winter games, the North American Indigenous Games and other such activities.

In order to bring these ideas to fruition, a core group of individuals were recruited to organize recreation activities at the community level and the Grand Council territory. It was anticipated that these employees would be the catalyst around which sports, culture and recreation activities could evolve.
