Athletes from 11 communities make up Nunavut’s 44-athlete contingent, competing in three sports
The 2017 North American Indigenous Games begin July 16, 2017, and CBC North will be on the ground in Toronto, covering athletes from the 3 territories through the competition. Before the opening ceremonies begin, CBC North will profile each territory’s contingent.
With just 44 athletes and no cultural contingent travelling to the 2017 North American Indigenous Games, Nunavut’s contingent is the smallest of the three territories, but perhaps the most prepared.
While both the Yukon and N.W.T. contingents will leave Saturday, all of Nunavut’s athletes are already in the Toronto area, taking part in mini-camps to get them acclimatized to the city and their venues, according to chef de mission Jeff Seeteenak.
