Sport and Reconciliation Gathering

The Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management at the University of Manitoba is proud to host the Sport and Reconciliation Gathering February 21-23, 2018 where we will explore how to achieve the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s five Calls to Action (#87 - #91) related to sport and recreation. This gathering brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous sport leaders, policy makers, Elders and stakeholders from our University and broader communities so that we can learn from our past to make changes for our future.
