The North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) help Indigenous athletes realize the collective potential of our bodies, minds, spirit and of our people – our hopes and dreams – the spirit strong, brave and true.

The Games will bring together 756 Indigenous Nations to celebrate, share and reconnect through sport and culture in Kjipuktuk (Halifax), Punamu'kwati'jk (Dartmouth) and Millbrook First Nation from July 15 – 23, 2023.

NAIG2023 needs 3000 volunteers.

Each volunteer will attend three orientation sessions.

1. Orientation (1 hour): introduction to the history of the Games, the importance of holding them in Kjipuktuk (Halifax), general volunteer responsibilities and contributions.

2. Cultural Awareness (1.5 hours): an overview of Indigenous history (including difficult history), how to talk to and about Indigenous People, and a framework for being an ally.

Please note that a 3rd training will take place closer to the Games that will review the responsibilities of each volunteer role.
