About the Indigenous Sport Council Alberta

We proudly provide quality, comprehensive Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy and Custom Crafted Orthotics

The vision to involve Alberta Indigenous people in meaningful and enjoyable sport activities on a regular and organized basis was founded by Mr. Wilton Littlechild , the late Mr. John Fletcher and Mr. Charles Wood. The initial organization was named the Indian Sports Olympic Association (INSPOL). Unfortunately due to lack of on-going finanicial support the Association was unable to continue to work towards the initial vision.

In 1988, a grassroots movement aimed at developing a major sporting event for Indigenous youth took hold. In 1990, this vision became a reality when the first North American Indigenous Games were held in Edmonton. Over 3000 participants completed in a varity of sporting activities.

In 1994, the Indigenous Sport Council (Alberta) was formally registered with Alberta Corporate Registries. The Indigenous Sport Council (Alberta) advocates, coordinates and promotes increased awareness/opportunities in participation for youth and leaders at all levels, from Alberta Games to national/international competitions. its mandate is:

to encourage and promote the physical, spiritial, and cultural health, and fitness of Indigenous Youth within the Province of Alberta;

to encourage, foster and develop emotional, mental, spiritial and physical well-being in Indigenous Youth in Alberta;

to encourage development of self-esteen, pride, diginity, confidence and self-discipline in Indigenous Youth;

to increase awareness and understanding of Indigenous people, their culture and communities;

to encourage and promote Indigenous Youth to pursue higher levels of education;

to identify and promote indigenous community development throug the implementation of leisure and recreation programming;

We are always looking for sponsors
