The Aboriginal Sports Circle NWT (ASCNWT) is currently accepting applications for the upcoming Northern and Dene Games Instructor Training in Katl'odeeche First Nation from November 25-29, 2019. Interested applicants should have a passion for the traditional sport or show interest in starting their own programming in their community, and a resident of the Northwest Territories. 


This workshop will be taught by elders and facilitators Donald Kuptana & Colinda Blondin. They will go in depth about the history of Northern and Dene Games, teach proper technique for competition, give advice on facilitating and share valuable knowledge for your own programming in your community. All of those who attend will be given the opportunity to attend special ASCNWT events as an official. Together we would like to build capacity in Northern and Dene Games and pass on the importance of the traditional survival games.

Established in 1999, ASCNWT was created through a national consensus-building process in response to the need for more accessible and equitable sport and recreation opportunities for Aboriginal peoples across the Northwest Territories.

We believe that all Aboriginal people in the NWT should have the opportunity to participate in sport and recreational activities at a level of involvement they find meaningful and valuable.
