“This week, more than 3000 First Nations young men and women will arrive in Saskatoon to demonstrate their athleticism and skill at the 2012 Saskatchewan First Nations Winter Games hosted by the Battlefords Agency Tribal Chiefs.
Through their determination and passion, the athletes, coaches, trainers, officials, organizers, and volunteers are demonstrating to all of Saskatchewan how integral sport is to the success of First Nation youth. They allow the expression of team spirit and the development of values that will lead the way for a vibrant and renewed component of First Nations culture.
On behalf of all Aboriginal Liberal Youth of Saskatchewan, I would like to extend my best wishes for a safe and successful Winter Games and congratulate all the competitors for representing their communities with such pride and sportsmanship!”
