Celebrate Indigenous History Month with Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame

Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame presents a remarkable opportunity to ignite curiosity and inspire individuals with the extraordinary stories of Indigenous athletes who have made a lasting impact on Canada’s sporting heritage.

People across the country are invited to join Cindy Martin, the great-great-great niece of Tom Longboat, as she shares insights into his enduring legacy—one that is deeply intertwined within the fabric of Canada’s rich sporting history. Additionally, they will gain invaluable perspectives from Kerri Einarson, a four-time Scotties Tournament of Hearts Champion and the 2021 recipient of the prestigious Tom Longboat Award.

This unique opportunity allows individuals to connect with real-life role models, exploring themes of perseverance while celebrating the rich diversity of Indigenous sporting heritage.
